Ford Focus Problem

6 posts in this topic

I have a problem with a 01 1.6 Focus, turning the key she turns fine but she barely starts(like as if she's getting no petrol) after about 20 seconds, when it does start she revs up to about 2000 revs and drops down to nothing and starts spluttering and sometimes cuts out , if she keeps going she sounds like she's missing then evens out and then cuts out again.

Any help...................

Some first post.....

i had a few starting issues not to that extent but a new idle control valve sorted me out theres a few things 1 is worn plugs the second is a various sensor has gone a fault code should have been thrown up ide start with plugs and fuel filter if that doesnt cure it get the fault codes read if there are none then ide change the idle control valve

When I start mine the revs go to 1800 - 1900 rpm but then gradually idle at 1000 - 1100 rpm. This is from a cold start and runs fine after that. Maybe she needs a bit of tlc.

probably not as its just the automatic choke

yea, likely but that is still over revving....try cleaning that idle valve, looks like it working over time really :)
