SANTA MUERTE: if your a part changer u gon waste lot of money..test and then replace..things I would check..fuel preassure, tps, constant crank and cam signals, and impur out put computer signals
harry raehausen: Did you lose electric power also when it dies?
Al Hamus: My 2005 focus is stalling I found a area where the battery is dripping acid once and a while on part of a wiring harness right where it plugs together to the right side of the battery box it looks very crowded. I would think this is an issue at least its a good place to start the harness really looks bad it must have been doing that for a while.
Steve Miller: What's the shiny disc between the air intake and the jug on the passenger side of the engine?
Jeremy Rothgeb: I have an 03 zx3 moded out and have been having this issue and watching this video just helped me. It is most likely to be the idle control valve, with all of the things you listed you have done to stop it and everything I have done to mine to try to stop it basically leaves that to play with. So thank you I will be getting mine fixed today.
Arif Elassal: What's the air filter called I'm trying to get the same one !!!
b smith: the idle control valve needs cleaning or replacing
Chris thursby: its not a filter on the fuel pump its a screen that the fuel passes threw and does act as a filter but the fuel filter is under the car and is in a fuel line usually located bolted on the frame
Bobby Brady: However, the truth is that Ford is very much the same as Chrysler. They both make great trucks and vans but your really don't want one of their cars. In the case of Chrysler, their cars are undependable and short lived. In the case of Ford, their cars are noisy and just full of little quirks.
Bobby Brady: These early Focuses, from the base model to the top of the line need premium gasoline. Get a manual and read it. Use no less than 87 octane, and never let the gas gauge go below 1/4, allow about 500 miles for the computer to reset, and all of the problems (rough idling, stalling, hesitation, etc.), disappear like magic. This includes the dreaded 2.0 SOHC engine.
Cody Johnson: @Dan Walters to correct your correction it would be my dad and I not my dad and me
Dan Walter: "My dad and me".. PO LEEEZE.. it's never, "Me and my dad." no matter what you hear in all the self-centered songs today (and television). English 101. Besides that.. thanks for the video Chris!
Matt Smith: check you vacuum hose that goes into your intake manifold. you'll hear a hissing noise. follow the noise. no spray needed unless it's coming from the intake itself. then you'd have to spray the gaskets. i have a 2000 ford focus and it was a vacuum hose with a big ass hole in it. i'll post a video later.
The Fruit Guy Films: Did you fixed the problem?
Street48: It's weird, but my car used to do that, until a track-day, when I filled up with mid-grade gasoline, and managed to reach 160km/h. I had no problems since then, I guess the pressure required to run at such speed cleared the fuel line.
Jeno Tamas: Chris. Next time before all the work just put a gauge on the rail and run to windshield from outside and hold down with wipers to keep at eye shot. Runs it up long hills and what for a drop in pressure , there a vac hose and electronic sensor where the UFO disc clips onto rail (orange clip at line and reg connect.) good job on the diag , Most techs would bounce that. I just found the disc leaking off throttle a little on a customers car on ford discontinued it. Great Motor, I've had three Focus
petev123456789: lol ford's do suck kinda tho. In MN the rust to crap worse than anything
petev123456789: yep that makes sense cuz the polarity of driving on the left hand side of the street and writing in all caps tends to do that.
petev123456789: toyota's rule. Also I use gumout regane BEFORE every oil change (cuz supposedly that crap lowers oil smoke point or something. Im sure seafoam or techron or whatever works good too...never tried it.
