Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Here is what has been done on my car so far...changed pcv valve and hose, had the fdm fixed under recall, new fuel filter, fuel tank cleaned, cleaned and had mass air low check, and a new oxygen censor after the converter. but my idle runs high then drops quickly and stalls. does this when i come to any stops right hand turns mostly but left also. if i pump brakes can keep it from stalling some of the times. car also seems to sound rougher. any ideas? could it be my IAC or TPS?
It could be a lot of things, check the gas cap, vacuum leak, IAC, may need a tune-up ( check plugs, wires, air filter), seizing pulley, timing issue (check CKP sensor and CMP sensor), sticking valves, misfire, Fuel line pressure, or an issue with CAT or muffler.Good luck.

Sounds like fuel problems. Turning your car in any direction has nothing to do with it. I assume your car is fuel in jected. Also that you have had the plugs , wires , cap and rotor replaced. If not do this. Then if you still have the problems the fuel presure has to be checked. That requires an inline gage be attached to check the presure while engine is running. If thats okay, then the fuel presure regulator might be sticking. Of course things like water in the fuel take and filters all need to be checked. Im sorry that its a big job. If you have to pay someone itll cost you money. If they just replace parts (guessing) thats no way to go about it. So plugs, wires, cap and rotor.replace. Then fuel delivery. I suggest you get the book for 15 bucks from autozone. Good luck
