Okay, I have a 2007 ford focus 2.0 duratec that is having a problem with the throttle only when it is cold outside. First problem occurred when I was on the highway and the throttle got stuck wide open. Upon checking the throttle body and the error codes, I found the throttle body was gummed up with carbon, so I cleaned it. Better for a few days and then back to sticking so I replaced the throttle body and due to an error code I also replaced the IAC valve. (The throttle cable moves freely btw) Yesterday (after it got below 20) I go out to start it and when I hit the accelerator it is sticky again. Hopped on the highway and the throttle body stuck open again. Had to go to work so I could not check it at that time. Next morning I Checked the cable, it moves freely. Throttle body however is sticking and its new! I removed the air inlet and found there is ice in the throttle body. I am going to assume this is causing the problem, will the ice cause it to stick open once on the road? Why is there so much moisture in the throttle body in the first place. Any Ideas?
have the same problem?
