Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
There are a couple of possibilities. When the motor is cold there is a "Cold Start routine" which relies on a Water temperature sending sensor to tell the brain that it needs to run this routine. Usually there are 2 temp sensors and 1 is for the dash gauge and the other is for the signal to the brain. Go to an Autoparts store and tell them what you want it for and they should be able to show you where it goes.
Another possibility is a loose gasket on the Intake manifold. With a little heat the gasket seals and the engine runs better. While the engine runs, you can spray a little Choke cleaner around the gasket seams and if the RPM changes you have found the leak. Either tighten the bolts or replace the gasket.
