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 !!!
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.
James Able: Screw you, dill hole. Go play with yourself. Do something constructive & shove a Honda up your ass.
Alexn1067: okay, whatever you say tool
diosa loca: If it was a HONDA it would still be bulletproof, not this Ford piece of crap.
Ammar Đonlagić: I HAVE SAM PROBLEM ,I HAVE FORD FOCUS 1.6 TDCI TREND,IN 2 -GEAR OVER 2.800/RPM 60KM/H+ ACCELERATION HE DIE,LIKE HE DONT HAVE FUEL,PROBLEM IS NOT FUEL,FILTERS,ect..PROBLEM IS ELECTRICITY MAIN BOX,(sensor,and parameters?...IN EUROP TO FIX THAT COSTS -1.000 EUROS!.
MoBass601: Mine does the same thing just only when it's been running for a while seems like it's a fuel saving feature but i'm not sure
Christopher Banacka: Sorry about that, i closed out my myspace months ago.
I have updated the video info with the picture link!
Christopher Banacka: My brother owns the same car, 2001 model.
And his just started doing the same problem.
Right off the bat we have cleaned out the fuel tank (was super dirty with sludge) change the fuel pump, and fuel filter AND fuel pump filter.
So far it has helped a ton but still has happens.
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
