Weird Idling issue!!
So this has happen only in the summer which is the time I got the car. Whenever it would get hot and I drive my car and turned it off and then back on it wouldnt idle right. It would turn on then die right away. They only way it kept running was if I gave it gas and continued to do so. Eventually it was idle normally. It also happened when I ripped on it hard when it was HOT outside too. It doesnt happen at night really. Maybe once. Then during the winter I would turn it on and it'd die but if I turned it on again it would stay on. I dont know if those are the same thing going on or not, but I really need to fix it. It's so unconvenient.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Stalling is a common failure mode on older Focii; you IAC valve might be dirty/failed, or your PCV hose might be collapsed.

Plug those terms into the forum search box and a thousand posts will pop up.

This thread contains details regarding the torn PVC hose problem, which is common with the 2.0 Zetec:

Best of luck!
