Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

2000 Focus started stalling out at stops; you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal to keep it running. Mechanic can't duplicate it and hasn't been able to find a problem. The same symptom happened one time with our Buick; it was an idle air control with carbon build up...Could this be the same thing? or what else should we look at?

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.

it sounds like it is starving for fuel, the fuel filter may be clogging up. when a fuel filter gets dirty and cuts some of the flow of fuel, it will stall out at stops. because the engine does not have the proper amount of fuel to keep it running. have a good day !

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

Car stalls at stop signs


will it re-start right back up?
next time try to keep your foot on the gas pedal to see if it stay running ( be careful when you do this, if you give too much gas the car will over come the brake and cause accident )
if it stay running then you need to replace an idle air control valve
