    3. 2011 Focus stalls/low rpm

      I am experiencing a strange problem with my 2011 Focus, that does not occur all the time. Some times it stalls a bit easily, then the other day I started it and it did not want to rev past about 1100 rpm. So I turned it off and started it again and it was fine. Any ideas?
