Ford Focus Stalling

Asked by Nov 25, 2016 at 02:34 PM about the 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is the third time I've had this type of problem
with my car. When it's going at a constant speed
like on the freeway it's fine, but when I slow down
and I take my foot of the gas like I'm coming to a
red light or a stop sign most of the time it'll stall and
all my lights on my dashboard will come on. Last
time the issue was that there was a cracked pipe
and they fixed it and checked the mass airflow
sensor and said it was fine. It's been about 6
months since then and this just began to happen
again. Has anyone had these issues or know what it
could be?

Have the DTC (trouble codes) read, as it may be setting one or more, that will give you a big lead on what is happening. You may have a bad IAC (idle air control) valve, which provides air to an engine when idling or at a stop. If you have a vacuum leak, sometimes you can hear or even feel it, inspect around the throttle body for one.
