2006 ford focus idle speed too low when cold


Have you replaced the spark plugs and wires? Also,a dirty MAF sensor can play hob with your idling.
GENTLY clean the wires in the MAF sensor with a MAF sensor spray and a clean fine-haired brush. My electric shaver brush(long haired side)workedreally well on mine. You'll hafta buy a
special torx set with the holes drilled in the ends.Look at the screws holding the MAF sensor and you'llsee what I mean. Hope this helps! Don-ohio (:^)

99 Ford zx2 wont idle after i degreased the engine.


I would start with a compressoin check. You should get more then 160 psi on each cylinder on a cold engine. If these numbers are low, then the timing belt is your likely issue. Since these engines are non-interference (don't let anyone tell you different) you can just put a new belt and pulley kit on and be done with it. I even have a how-to for this in my tips and tricks on my profile.

A bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor can cause rough running problems. This is easily tested by unplugging the MAF (4 or 6 wire plug) from the vehicle to see if running improves. The connector for the MAF can be found on the front of the airbox just after the air filter locking ring.

If that isn't the issue, a fuel pressure test is an order. You should see around 45 psi with the engine at idle and 60 psi with the engine off and key on.

Engine will not start!!!


was the timing belt changed, since it overheated the cam may have gotten tight and the belt might have jumped 2-3 teeth and you still would have a spark and fuel pressure.

Low power under acceleration on 1997 Escort


check the harmonic balancer. it is probably bad and its causing your timing to be off. if its cracked or wobbles replace it. if not the woodruff key might be twistid and causing the problem. id pull off the harmonic balancer and while you have it off check the timing belt. if the timing marks dont' line up replace the belt and water pump. its recommended to change the belt every 60,000 miles. if the belt is good replace the balancer.
