Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Replace icv and tps
It sounds like the TPS was installed improperly..It has to be set in place with no tension on the spring loaded mechanism...This will cause the throttle to rise...I don't know what problem you had before replacing these components but nothing should magically go bad while doing it unless it is a faulty new part...Try removing the TPS ..,INSPECT it to see the plastic lever operation is in correct timing with the lever it is mounted to ...Look close with a light to see what I am describing then carefully connect it....I've seen it happen before...If not the IAC..( idle air control sensor )..will cause it to have a high idle if it is bad....),,maybe it was accidently disconnected .....GOOD LUCK..
