03 focus runs fine. Acts like it is starving for fuel when come to stop at light or something. Pump gas a little and takes off runs fine. No check engine light.

check battery voltage, it seems these cars have a shutdown condition when the voltage drops below a certain amount, and not holding peak voltage

Sometimes a battery pole is not tight causes exact same problem. Also replace fuel filter to rule out. Hope this helps.
