    its the air idle control valve

    My car has the same problem. It is an automatic, but when the AC is on it revvs up and down all the time. When the AC is OFF, it runs totally fine. Do I need to check the air idle control valve?

I had the same problem it is the throotle speed control valve it is located on the outside of the intake manifold it is fairly easy to get at do not go bye the book i found an easier way. it is on the manifold but is not quite visibal check the backside closest to the moter you will need a 2 inch extension cant remember the size of the golt but is quite small mayme 5 mm, the manual will help you locate it. i did not buy a new one but cleaned it instead and has worked fine since. when you get it back in and start the motor you may hear a loud howling noice but dont worry it will go away it did take about an hour of running. i did this back in november and has been fine since. hope this helps

I have a 2000 ford focus. It was stalling when Idling, So we replaced the fuel filter that didn't fix the problem. Scanned and found that it was idling at 18%, upped the idle and it quite stalling but it ate gas like a pig. Replaced the TPS, Reset idle down to normal. Now it guts out at 20KM/hr still idles. The RPM are off the roof in Park and Neutral. THe TB was cleaned, I am at a loss.

What is wrong with it, What more can I do?

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.

TPS Throttle Position Sensor - if you noticed prior to incident a
fluctuating or revving tachometer (engine rpm) on idle , your
sensor if going out.

Check the fuel pressure regulator for to much pressure.Pull the vacuum hose off the map sensor and if fuel runs out then replace the regulator.

1986 Nova: engine stops while standing and at low RPM. OK before I got rear ended. Next start up: would not idle without revving. Next startup: OK but died while driving home; kick started without any...


Is the choke opening up all the way after it warms completly up ? and have you checked the fuel lines to the gas tank they might have got pinched in wreck.

My ford focus is reving high wen i put clutch down and is only doin 40 miles on £10 petrol


Wild revving can be a sign of a bad idle control valve, clogged fuel or air filter, fouled plugs, or bad fuel sending unit.

There are no sensors on any of these things and the ecu isn't smart enough to trouble code them.

Start with the cheap stuff and work your way up the money ladder.
