Gas pedal Problem

The temp has recently drop to around -21 degrees. I own a 2007 Ford Focus SES. When i start up the car, the RPM's race to nearly max. When driving it feels like the throttle is stuck, the rpms are not steady. As the vehicle warms up abit, the rpms drop abit, when i come to a stop, the rpms will race to around 5000 then 10 seconds later it will drop to normal.

The tachometer shows 900 RPM on idle position but as i put the car in gear and release the clutch the RPM drops and u have to race the car manually through accelerator pedal.recomend the diagnostics a


The engine does not need to be raced when cold

The vehicles computer will adjust the idle according
to how the manufacture programmed it

After about one mine or so, the idle on most vehicles
comes down to approx 750RPM, generically speaking

When you put the car in gear,assuming it is an automatic,
the rpm will drop a 100 at most & may be adjusted by the
computer, just as it does when you put the A/C on. That is
to compensate for the change in engine load

You should be waiting for the rpm to come down to 650 to
800 & then a couple more minutes for some temp to come
up, before driving off. In cold weather wait at least 5 min or more

I think your vehicle is not working correctly, or you not explaining
it in a way I understand what answer you want

2001 ford focus


you may have a vacuum leak, or a bad idle air control valve, the first thing to do is have the computer scaned for codes,you can go to an autozone parts store they scan for free,if there are no codes then look for a vacuum leak around the intake may have a bad vacuum hose.

Wers the heater motor situated on the focus mk 1


It does not have a heater motor. The temp control door is controlled by cables located on the driver's side near the gas pedal. If you are talking about the blower motor it is located on the passenger side behind the glove box.

Its to hot driving this car


Two ways to help with your problem....You can get a section of aluminum or tin and fashion a heat shield to cover the area that is making the floor hot. when attaching it, use spacers so it stands away from the attachment points. You can also buy heat wrap and heat "blankets" form many race suppliers (I know for sure they are available from Summit racing). Wrap goes on pipes etc and blanket can be installed under your rug. I know it's annoying to have to fix a poor factory design, but at least there is a cure.
Good luck!!

Engine races hot or cold


It sounds very much like the idle air valve is faulty as I have just had same sort of problem I fitted a new idle air valve and it has cured mine. Unfortunately these idle air valves are not cheap. They are about £70 from ford but you can get them on ebay for about £30 from partsdome
