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
