If your car lacks power it needs the extra RPMs to push the weight of the vehicle. Most cars idle smoothly at about 700 RPMs. Check the engine compression on all cylinders. If they are all even (within 10lbs) and about 100 psi or more then you may just need a tune up or some work done on the fuel system. Hopefully the engine isn't running hot or has oil control problems which will require some major repairs.

MY 2003 4.6LITER F150 IDLES HIGH FOR UP TO 20 SECONDS WITH MY FOOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR. AROUND 1800 RPMS THEN DOWN TO 950 TO 1100. HOW DO I STOP THIS .


The most common solution would be to replace the throttle position sensor or try spraying some choke and carb cleaner around the butterfly in the intake if you see any carbon build up in there.

Focus GRINDING NOISE during excellaration


I had the same exact problem with my 2003 Focus with 108,000 on it. Making right turns and accelerating was even worse. Had many ideas from differant mechanics saying it was wheel bearing, steering rack, loose heat shields, transmission...ect. Well after having wheel bearing replaced and steering rack replaced, the grinding was still there. It was finally discovered that the noise was coming from a bad motor mount on the right side. Had the dealer replace the motor motor mount and finally!!! the problem was solved. Thank God.

Have a look at your registration document, it will show you exact engine size, most probably 1796 cc.When people desctribe the engine size, it is generally approximated to the nearest hundred.
So 1796 cc is generally described as being 1800 cc or in litres 1.8 litres.
