2004 ford ikon idle problem when engine is warm.

Asked by May 18, 2016 at 02:19 AM about the 2003 Ford Escort ZX2

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the idle sensor and also cleaned the throttle body but no
change. What else could it be? Some people suggest i change the fuel filter?
Please advise as im desperate cause the car is in daily use. When i come to a
sudden stop the idle drops and car switches off.   Ford ikon 2004 model

not filter, it wouldn't run over five mph , IAC idle air control is an electronic gadget on the intake near throttle usually . they clog with carbon and the little motor drive sticks blocking air flow

Check for contaminated Fuel. The fuel filter is in the fuel tank and part of the pump. Has the throttle body been fiddled with ? Check the MAP sensor is securely fitted and has no leaks.
