Overheating, maybe? Get a technician to read the diagnostic codes (or rent/buy the tool to do it yourself) they will almost certainly tell you what is wrong.

Car runs terrible at cold starts, once warm it runs perfect


engine coolant temp sensor is your most likely culprit, when engine is cold it uses the readings to set air fuel mixture, injector pulse

Rough idle after warm up


I'd take a look at the temp sender...the engines computer may be "thinking" the engine is still cold when it's not. That would cause it run rich (and rough) after it's warmed up. Generally the sender can be tested with an ordinary volt/ohmeter but you will need the specifications available in most inexpensive manuals. As with any complicated electronics system, I can only give you my best guess, without the luxury of doing any hands-on testing myself.
Good Luck!!

2001 MAZDA TRIBUTE COLD STARTING PROBLEM


My wifes car had this same problem at about 100000 miles and after many trips to the shop it turned out to be carbor build up in the intake manifold. A fuel injector cleaner was hooked up and it helped the problem, but did not completely solve it. In oreder to get it totally clean the intake had to be removed and clean it out manually.

Check the fuel pressure when the vehicle is cold and compare it with when it's hot.Also check the fuel return dump valve , that this isn't returning too much fuel.
