00' Ford Focus- Engine revving up and down in idle! Help!

Asked by Mar 11, 2015 at 02:35 PM about the 2000 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently had my 2000 Ford Focus serviced for an oil leak which lead to several parts
being replaced, and now it seems to rev up and down (as if i were lightly pressing the gas
pedal repeatedly) while in idle or park. I have also noticed that it is struggling more to
accelerate and to get up hills. Any ideas as to what this might be and how much a
mechanic would charge to fix it?
