Changing idle control "Changing Part Tips"

16 July 2009 - 10:00 AM

Hi there

I own a black V Reg Ford Focus.

Due to this website I have manage to find out what was wrong with my car.

Symothoms: Stalling, Hesitation, Reving out of control, idle getting stuck.

Apparently this is very common problem with the Ford Focus. How ever I now know I need to change the idle control valve which I jus brought on eBay.

I was wondering if any body new of any tips for changing this part of where I could download some sort of an engine diagram fro free from. I have located it in the engine but if I had a diagram to look at I could familiar raise my self before attempting this. Also is this an easy part to change?

Idle is stuck around 2500 & 3500 Revs when starting my car

02 July 2009 - 05:15 PM

I have a ford focus v reg. Today the while driving the idle got stuck at 3000 revs and wouldn't come down. i stop the car and turned the engine off. i started up the car again and with out reving the engine the idle automatical went to 3000 revs. so i put the car in gear and slowly released the cluch pedal and with out putting my foot on gas the car staring driving. Basically what i'm trying to say is if i want to drive my car i don't need to put my foot on the gas as the idle seems to be hovering around 2500 to 3500 revs.

Can you help me please, thanks.

Hi there

I currently own a ford focus V Reg 2.0l

Iíve got a problem with it at the moment and wondered if any body could help me???

While driving at times I notice the car starts to hesitate or more like start jerking, even if Iím in fifth gear. If itís not jerking I notice a loss in power for a second or two. I know itís to do with a sensor but I donít know which one and where to find it.

Can you advise me please?

Hi there

I own a V reg 2.0l Ford Focus.

I've got a few problems with it at the moment. One being a loss of power and hesitation when driving it. After an ECU Check it came back with one of the faults being a Lamba sensor which i guess is causing the above fault i mention.

Does any one know where this located in the engine?

Many thanks.
