2005 Ford Focus zx4 ST (2.0L 4 Cyl)

Engine hesitates, stumbles or misfires when accelerating - warm engine. Replaced pcv valve and hose, tps, fuel pressure regulator, new fuel pump and filter and fuel control module. Can anyone help?

VIN: 1FAFP34N65W124443

It may be of no help, but the ST is a 2.3L, not a 2.0L.

Maybe intake manifold leak somewhere, have someone look at realtime data output of the upper O2, if stuck below .5 volt at idle then yes.

upper 02 sensor replaced 5 days ago. pcv valve replaced a month ago. intake manifold had to be removed to replace pcv and hose on 2.3 duratec engine. I assumed the mechanic put a new manifold gasket in also. car runs good when cold/warm. seems to hesitates after engine has been running for a while - when hot.
