2000 subaru forester wont start battery is good what can I check next

Do headlights work? Do they get dim when you hit the start position, if so battery has bad cell.
Bad batteries might be OK after charging and running the car for a time but will discharge after car sits for maybe longer than a half hour. Usually a bad cell.
Take to auto parts store, they will load test it for free.

2000 ford focus w/ 2.0L on cold start-up runs ruff, idles badly until it warms 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.

My 2000 ford contour just yesterday started getting sluggish, eas having problems getting past 50 miles per when you pull something with your truck up hill.. then today we drove it to town this...

First try changing the fuel filter. It is extremely easy and costs about 12 dollars at Wal-mart. If that doesn't work than try changing the fuel pump itself. Little more costly but still pretty simple to do.
