Focus Cuting Out...

29 April 2012 - 09:13 PM

My 1999 focus, 1.8 petrol has just come out of my mates garage, and now keeps cutting out.
When the revs drop (stopping or changing gear) it just keeps dropping and cuts out (sometimes) I genuinely have no idea what he has done to it as he said he has had a "play with a few things" but not quite sure what he has actually done but apparently something to do with re-routing a few things, he didn't go into detail..... It originally went in as I thought the thrust bearing had collapsed, but turns out it was a gearbox issue, so have new gearbox and clutch now......
Does anyone have any idea what it should actually be idling at as it's currnetly idling at just below 1000 RPM,
HELP!!! (will in future be sending car to proper garage or doing it myself so I know whats actually been done!!)
