I have a 2005 Focus ZX4 ST with 3200 miles that I have to crank over several times after it sits for 8+ hours. When it starts it spits, sputters and shakes, then clears up and runs fine. It only seems to do this every couple of days in cold and warm weather not consistently, so I havenít said anything to the dealership yet.
