Question about 2000 Ford Focus
2.0L engine runs ruff on start-up.
Could be a problem with ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature) sensor or fuel injection system. Will need to test and check in order to discard.

what codes are present? If it is lean codes P0171/P0174 problem is most likely the orings leaking between upper and lower intake manifold if this is a 4.0L
