Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Car just started revving at 3000rpm at idle it was fine one minute and the next its revving at 3000rpm
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?
