Sounds like a fuel injector problem.
Turn on car pop hood and put your head near the rear of the engine block and smell for gasoline and listen for a hissing spraying type sound. Also look around the injectors (look like little plastic clip plugs with wires attached to them) look for leaking fuel or any fluids bubbling out

I just got a 02 sensor fo rmy dodge intrepid and put it in and it started running worse so I changed it back to the old one and it is doing better. Did I get the wrong one?

You didn't mention if a specific code was retrieved to have you change the o2 sensor. Also did you replace the correct sensor? I mean when a code comes up for an o2 sensor it will tell you which sensor, 1 or 2 and in which bank 1 or 2. Your car is a v6 and has four sensors. Also you upon changing a sensor would have to disconnect the negative battery terminal which is at the right upper engine compartment, usually a good idea to do before you start job and reconnect when finished.
Now you have to wait for the car computer to relearn the new sensor and put the cars world good again. I would be happy to help you further if you have any more questions. GOOD LUCK.

Just replaced both 02 sensors as the check engine light indicated that was the problem. Now the car is running really rough after sitting for a while, after a minute or two it runs fine. Intermittent...

It is surprising to me that both o2 sensors would go bad at the same time, but it could be possible. If your mechanic disconnected the battery, and installed the o2 sensors, upon connecting the battery the computer would have to relearn the cars performance again. This could take anywhere from 100- 250 miles. Don't get upset, take the car for a ride and let the computer do it's job. If this doesn't work then it is possible that one of the sensors is bad. Your computer will let you know via CHECK ENGINE light. GOOD LUCK.-

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving

A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.
