Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

My Ford Focus is a 2000, and a lot of times it shudders violently when I'm idle or under 1000 RPM. Only once have I had it actually kill the engine. For now I've been keeping my foot on the gas...


replace the iack (idel air control valve) this controls you air to fuel mixture when can is just idleing
when you use the gass peddle to keep rpms us this over rides the iack just replace it and it should be ok

I have a ford focus 56 model and sometimes it does not start no mileage working and when it does start sometimes dash lights stay on and the accelerator is slow like a flat spot.


I have a 2006 Focus and I am having the same problems. I have already replaced the battery and it hasn't helped. This is not a constant problem. Only every couple of days and then she runs fine. However I have noticed my gas peddle sticking when I first try to give it gas. Then it clears up and runs fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've already chosen normal driving... if you tow a trailer or drive it rough you may want to change that.
