Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Some sensor wire may have been dislodged or something may have come loose when doing the remove and replace.
Check all the connections and grounds.

It sounds like the air idle control valve that could be faulty. I had same problem on my 1.8 focus I replaced the valve and its been fine ever since

The idle should not have changed. Guessing the idle control motor wasn't reconnected or a fairly large vacuum leak. Those cars are notorious for a leak that causes high idle, I think it's the PCV hose that fails but don't recall for sure.

That's rubbish, when the fan belt is changed as long as it's not to tight or to loose everything will be fine, the fan belt operates the power steering, air conditioning etc, if that's all working when fitted an easy way to find out another problem your not sure of is to pop into a garage and have a didiagnostic test.

Testimonial: "Hey Paul, it wasn't the serpentine belt, it was the timing belt. Someone said the same thing happend to theirs and when they drove around for 20-30 minutes it stopped. They said they had a friend who worked for for and they said it was normal. Something about the automatic hydraulic tensioner adjusting belt on its own once you start up,anD than the computer will re-learn the idle the way it should be. Again, I don't know if this is a fact, just something I was told and I saw another person say the same thing on another page. Was just tring to get the thoughts and opinions of others"

cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool

I suspect it is a problem with the evaporative emission system. Basically, it collects vapors from the fuel tank and stores them in a charcoal canister in the engine compartment. It thens purges them into the engine when the engine is warm and running at road speed. You may be dumping too much vapor because your canister is filling with fule as well as vapor.
Do you try to "nurse" teh tank full at the fuel station? If yes, you may be flooding the canister.
Try just filling it 3/4 each time & see if problem goes away.

with the engine running lift hood and lisen for a vacum leak and check all your vacum lines. if no vacum leak can be found then replace the idle air control valve.
