2001 FOCUS starts fine unless on a hot day after running errends, will not start, if you keep your foot on gas keeps running but when you take your foot off it stops. Will start up again when cooled 15...


I would go with the fuel pump or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve) Due to the fact that you have to keep the throttle on to keep the vehicle running that would be a sign of a faulty fuel pump or IAC. I would have the mechanic do a little more diagnostics before letting them cut lose on doing just one or the other.

Engine cutting out when idle


Since your CEL (Check Engine Light) is on you will first of all need to have the ECM trouble code read by a OBD II scanner to determine the exact cause of the problem first before throwing any money and parts at it.

If you can drive it to your local AutoZone the can usually read your codes with a scanner for no charge.

The black residue on your battery could be just corrosion on the battery terminals. Open up a can of Coke and pour it on the battery, the Coke will eat the acid.

2001 ford focus wants to die when it idles at stop lights.


Check the hose that comes from the intake manifold to the pcv valve. Over time they will collapse and leak causing an idle problem. Check with engine running.

Ford Focus cutting out


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
