This is a component function of the emmissions control module, what you are hearing is the enrichment and leaning of the fuel mixture to keep a safe exhaust for the environment. Thank you, Dana

Hi have ford focus mk1 2004 1.6 and when u press the clutch down the revs go up to around 3000 when ur slowing down only just got car anyone help pls

The first thing you need done is to have a scan of the engine control system performed. This would need to include what is called and OBD2 memory fault code test and then a engine running test. Any competent repair shop can run these tests as long as they have the correct type of engine scanner..

Rough idle problem

This could be due to a bad MAF sensor or an Oxygen sensor. Also, take your car for a compression test to make sure there are not any vacuum leaks.

Ford Focus ZX3 2.3 eng reving over 3000 in neutral

Could be a vacuum or intake leak somewhere.
Could be sticky IACV (idle valve) these just bolt onto the intake manifold with a couple of wire plugged into them. Give a spray with carb cleaner to get gunge out then spray some thin oil onto the moving parts. Hope this helps

On my 1998 ford focus, the revs seem pretty low when it ticks over. under braking the revs drop even lower, sometimes to the point where it cuts out. Any ideas ?

You have described a concern where as the idle air control valve has fialed or there is a vacuum leak in the PCV hose causing a lean condition.
