Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Focus over-revving I have a 99 ford focus 1.8 zetec. When i am driving and lift off the accelerator, the car does not slow. Also whilst moving if i engauge neutral, the vehicle will rev on it's own (upto 5000 rpm) and then as i brake - just before coming to a stop only then will the revs drop to an idle (900 rpm). I have tried changing the throttle housing and no luck. ????

    I havent replaced the accelerator cable because if the vehicle is being revved the throttle returns to idle position upon inspection (checking whilst another person is in the car revving it).
    Now i have noticed a small hose coming off the back of the inlet manifold was sucking flat, i replaced that as well as the air idler control valve and the throttle position sensor and still the same.

Fuel pump replacement on 2005 ford focus


Are you sure that you need to replace the pump? I drive a 54 plate mk2 1.6 zetec that wouldn't always start and I was told it was the fuel pump in the tank but because the fault was intermitant I didn't have it fitted and found out that the car didn't start because the fuel lift pump wasn't priming the system before starting. I found that there was a faulty connection on the relay for the pump that is in the compartment under the glove compartment.
