Hey paul does the iac valve have it to where I can just unplug it and go like that or do I have to take the iacv out? I know where its out but ill have to check for a connector. So basically if the cars runs better with it disconnected then it needs to be replaced

^^something like that but I'm not sure if the car will even idle with it unplugged. You can always take it off and try cleaning it with some carb cleaner or something of that nature. Carbon deposits build up in it over time which hampers it's operation which could turn into driveability problems ildes problems, and so on. It's cheaper to clean than to replace but, I will say it's easier to just put a new one on since they can be a bit tricky to get to. On the zetec you have to take the intake manifold off, and that sucks cause you got to get way under the car to reach the bottom bolts.

Hey guys, if anyone has any time this weekend and would like to meet up to have a look at my carm let me know. I have been having this idling problem and accelerating problem ever since i replaced my egr tube and I cant figure it out. I have asked people on here about it but it would be better having a focus driver actually feel it and look at it. If anyone has some time tomorrow or maybe tonight let me know and we can meet somewhere or ill go to ur casa. Text me since most of yall have my number and let me know if ur down!
