Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Replaced idle control valve and throttle position sensor
How high is the idle? Any roughness? Some ideas who by the control the butterfly valve on the throttle, or the MAF (mass airflow sensor)

The computer controls all sensors. Their maybe a fault in the computer that is making the engine idle high. Go to your mechanic and have him scan for problems. (error codes). Good luck.

Some times the E.G.R. will stick half open. This will make the engine surge or have high idle. Try replaceing the E.G.R. located under the upper intake. Do not go with after market E.G.R. The spring in them are to powrefil and the E.G.R. wil not open. Also try replaceing the O2 sensors. This could give the engine more fuel thus a higher idle. Some vehicles the T.P.S. can be ajusted, do some checking to see if yours is adjustable.
Please contact me if your problem presists.

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak or intake gaskets leaking. Try this. Start the engine and let it reach the idle it want to go to. Get you a can of Brake Clean and spray it around the intake manifold (it on the top center of the engine, you may have to removed a plastic cover) If the engine idle changes up or down then the intake gaskets are leaking hence your vacuum leak. I hope this will help you.

does your engine idle fast or slow? You may need to clean the idle selonoid or the throttle body. They carbon up and stick.

dont take soo much in consideration after you have make all this things, some time is on only for any wire faulty, or a shrt electrical arc in any place in wire system. ask auto tap mechsnics for this maybe they have similar case before.
