My year 2000 UK Focus has developed an intermittent fault.
Normally it's when the engine is warm, and I've been travelling above
When I take my foot off the accelerator, the car will keep going at
roughly the same speed.
If I dip the clutch, the engine can race to as high as 4000rpm.
Could this be the ISCV I keep seeing references to?
thanks in advance

I had/have a similar problem but only in 1st gear-the throttle will
stick in 1st and race away-I have taken it back to Ford 5 times and
they tell me there is no problem-a guy on here said it was the sensor
being worn-sounds very dangerous though at 60!
If the car is on the warm up say no more than a couple of minutes from cold
start, then this is normal and is a peculiarity of the ECU software.
If it still does it when hot then you have a problem, possibly with the TPS.
1.8 and 2.0 cars are most affected.
thanks for the replies guys. I took out the TPS and just sprayed it
with cleaner, put it back in, and it seems to have solved the problem
I don't know if I'm imagining it, but it seems a bit nippier around
town now, a bit more responsive.
Is this possible?
