2001 Ford FORD Engine And Engine Cooling Engine Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemI have a 2001 focus zx3 - 5sp that tends to stall when the ac is on. But it may not stall during the "initial" use period. Without warning, it will stall after the vehicle is turned off and then restarted. My service shop checked the computer codes for a problem and nothing came up. Yesterday, it was driven for about 30mins with the ac on (outside temperature around 80+ degrees). The vehicle ran fine with the rpms normal when stopped. The vehicle was turned off for about 90 mins. When attempting to restart it would stall. To get started i needed to keep foot on gas pedal (to maintain a high enough rpm to prevent the stall). If i did not keep the rpms up, vehicle would stall. While driving and stopping, i needed to keep my foot on the gas pedal to maintain the rpms. (this can be challenging with a 5-spd.) the vehicle was then parked for over four hours. It then started without problem and ran normally. During this period i did not have the ac on. I see that this may be a common problem with the focus. However, neither ford motor's customer service line nor the local ford dealer are aware of the problem. The vehicle was taken to a ford dealership (echelon ford) on 6/8/10 for a diagnostic of the problem and they could not recreate it. I was charged $108 for the shop time and still have no technical answer to this critical and potentially fatal problem...
