Idle Control Valve

16 September 2011 - 10:04 PM

HI GUYS.

LOOKING FOR A 'HOW TO' TO CLEAN THE IDLE CONTROL VALVE.
TO BE HONEST NOT EVEN SURE WHERE IT IS ON A 2.0L FOCUS?
IS IT IN THE THROTTLE BODY ON THE SIDE OF IT??
I AM ASSUMING THEY CAN JUST BE CLEANED WITH CARB CLEANER AND PUT BACK ON???

Key Remote Problems

14 September 2011 - 07:09 PM

IT'S THE 3 BUTTON REMOTE WITH KEY IN QUESTION.
SENT THE REMOTE PART OFF FOR REPAIR AS IT DIDNT WORK OR SO I THOUGHT.
RECIEVED IT BACK WITH NEW SWITCHES BUT IT STILL DOESNT WORK.
HAVE TRYED THE RE-SYNC - 0N OFF 4TIMES, CAR SOUNDS TO INDICATE READY. BUT WHEN I PRESS ONE OR ALL OF THE BUTTONS NOTHING WORKS,SUGGESTING IT DOESNT RECOGNIZE THE REMOTE.
ANY SUGGESTIONS GUYS??
THANKS!

Dtc 9202 Fuel Sender Open Circuit

14 September 2011 - 06:50 PM

HI ALL!

OK SO FILLED THE CAR TO A FULL TANK THE OTHER DAY-NO PROBLEMS
TODAY (35MILES LATER) THE FUEL GAUGE STAYS ON EMPTY.
I HAVE DONE THE DASH TEST AND GOT DTC CODE 9202 = FUEL SENDER OPEN CIRCUIT.

MY QUESTIONS ARE...
IS THIS SERIOUS?
WHAT HARM WILL IT DO?
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT IS NEEDED TO GET THIS FIXED-PART NUMBER ECT?
IS IT AN EXPENSIVE JOB TO GET DONE?

ON THE DASH TEST...
FUEL READING WAS - F255
OIL READING WAS - O 155
BATTERY VOLTAGE WAS - B155


OTHER SYMPTONS LEADING UP TO THIS....
CAR HESITATION
CUTTING OUT (REVS DROP TOO LOW WHEN STOP/DIP CLUTCH)
SOMETIMES REVS INCREASE WHEN CHANGING GEAR/DIP CLUTCH

WOULD THESE SYMPTONS BE RELATED??


PLEASE HELP! ANY ADVICE WELCOME!
MANY THANKS!!

Radomly Feel The Engine Miss A Beat/hesitate

18 August 2011 - 04:01 PM

hi all new to the site and a new owner of a ford focus 2.0 petrol hatch.
problems....started off with rough idle down to a broken vacuum pipe (assume it's a vacuum pipe as it sucks where the brake in the small pipe was) now fixed the rough idle is gone (maybe still a slight bit but might just be me).
now i've noticed that when cruising at any speed but mainly on a motorway at 70mph, the car will miss a beat/hessitate. it fells like someone has touched the brakes and then it picks up again, sometimes for a split second and sometimes for 1-2secs.
have noticed that at this time the revs seem to stay about the same but speed drops????
any ideas???
thanks!!
