Question about Ford Focus
I have a 2000 Ford Focus, 120K miles, recentley had new battery/alternator and timing belt put in. I have had inconsistent issues with the car bobbling and stalling when I come to a stop, or shift into park or neutral. Now, when the car is warm (after being run once or twice the same day) it stalls and dies promptly after being started. If you can quickly shift into drive the car runs 100% fine. Only when shifting will it stall. Took it into the Ford dealership, said there "maybe might" be an issue with the torque converter locking up, maybe getting too hot. They want to charge $1,000 just to look at it, god only knows after that what it'll cost. I'm wondering if there's another issue- vacuum related or maybe just filter/fluid related. I'm not good with cars, any advice?
Do you have the throttle body clean with intake cleaner and an old tooth brush, check engine or no? or the idle selenoide?These car had the EGR pipe breaking near the head(noisi)

SOURCE: stalls when put into gear
Its possible it could be other things causing the problem, but seeing as you've checked most of the likely causes, it is most likely your Torque-Converter. The lockup clutch in your Stator-Fan located inside the Torque-Converter could be siezed, causing the car to stall.

Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

Ignition system sounds probable on vhicle when everything gets warmed up. High pitched hum could be bad tire or worse bearing.

Testimonial: "Thank You for your response. The huming sound is present on idle from start-up,tires have just been replaced, would fuel pump be suspect?"
