Air filter?

Fuel filter?

Air intake sensor?

check for codes first, then fix those issues...

Look on throttle body there should be an electrical sensor if I'm correct change that sensor if nessessary if that doesn't work look for split hoses as there could be an air leak

Do Not adjust the throttle body. Clean it on the inside.

Adjust yuor idle air control on your carbs, your butterfly might be closed and your opening it when stepping on gas and letting air in. it should be a little hex screw near the throttle cable on carburetor

My 2005 Ford Focus won't stay running unless my foot is on the gas. It starts just fine & the check engine light is NOT on. What could be causing this?


It is likely that the engine management system has lost its base line calibration. If the battery is weak and during the crank to start the voltage dipped low enough the Engine Control Module lost its calibration. If the pedal is depressed during the crank the TPS (Throttle position sensor) will lose the idle position for the throttle. The hunting and surging and resultant stalling is the ECM seeking out the limits and re-establishing the throttle idle plate location.

If battery is OK than running the car allowing the calibration of the vehicle to reestablish itself will correct the problem. My experience is that this happens if the gas pedal is depressed during crank with a very very low battery voltage. Always the best way is to not touch the pedal during any cranking starting procedure. Or after a battery replacement.

To accelerate the calibration process attempt to run the car ingear tring not to allow the car to stall. After afew munites the car will have reestablished its normal running calibration and you will be allset.

My 2000 ford focus zts starts and runs good until i put it in drive then i drive up to a stoplight or sign then it cuts off unless i keep my foot on the gas, could it be my alternator? please help, thanks


Nope.
Problem sounds like a faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle body.
The computer adjusts idle speed by the control valve and how much air it lets into the intake.
Is the check engine light on ?

2001 FOCUS starts fine unless on a hot day after running errends, will not start, if you keep your foot on gas keeps running but when you take your foot off it stops. Will start up again when cooled 15...


I would go with the fuel pump or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve) Due to the fact that you have to keep the throttle on to keep the vehicle running that would be a sign of a faulty fuel pump or IAC. I would have the mechanic do a little more diagnostics before letting them cut lose on doing just one or the other.

1997 ford expedition will start but wont stay running unless you hold your foot on the gas pedal. Replaced mass airflow sensor because that's the code that came up. Doesn't do it all the time.


if code keeps coming up re check sensor and connections and if not done replace air filter ----if good than check fuel prssure sometimes clodding fuel filter can cause same problem and set off sensor
