|302Travis||Yeah it sucked but has turned out to be a good thing! Because I paid $2900 for it a year and a half ago(it was a steal of a deal). and I'm getting book value paid to me. Which currently is $4075 lol|

on the bright side, you no longer have a surging idle problem.
sorry about the misfortune and glad you walked away (relatively) unscratched.

|sleepyboy||Oh man so sorry to hear about that, good to hear your alright. We've had quite a few members walk away from crashes, so the focus has time and time again proved it's crash worthiness. Also glad you took a chevy out at least lol|

|302Travis||We shall never know now. :( dick head pulled out in front of me at an intersection in a chevy colorado. Hit it in the rear axle at about 45mph totaling my poor Focus :( But... SHE TOOK A CHEVY TRUCK WITH HER! lol And a testament to God and the Focus's crash safety. I came out of it with about 4 scratches and a bruise. GO FOCUS!|

|sleepyboy||HERE is the how to on cleaning the IAC|

|302Travis||It surges between like 250 to 900. Feels like it'll die sometimes.|

When cold, the IAC is probably moving farther than it does under normal circumstances.
It's probably hitting a slightly gunked up section and it's sticking....

^yeah, unless it is momentarily stuck open and takes a few moments to un-stick itself. If it happens every time you do a cold start, unplug the IAC electrical connector and try starting it.
Else, how high do the rpm's surge? Is it dumping fuel - what does the exhaust look/smell like during the surge?

|302Travis||Well the fuel filter only has about 10k miles on it and so I wouldnt think it would be that. Dirty iac maybe but shouldn't that affect the idle in more cases than just a cold start?|

|jetrinka||Dirty IAC. Plugged fuel filter. Lots of possibilities.|
