Question by  mselainey (10)

Why does my Ford Focus stop running while idling?

It cuts out when I'm sitting at a light or in traffic.

The Focus may have several problems related to dying at a stand still. First find and remove the Idle air Valve. Its near the throttle body and is only held on by two screws. This valve has a small pintle on its inside that can be adjusted by hand until a proper idle speed is found.
