O2 sensors do not cause any kind of starting problems, what can is a dirty upper intake and loss of fuel pressure after the pump turns off.
Here is what I would like you to do, run a fuel pressure leak-down test on the system, to do this you will need a fuel pressure tester, this connects to the fuel pressure test port that is in the fuel supply rail that connects to the fuel injectors, it looks like a metal tire valve, the tester is about $15 at any Kragen or store like it, hook the tester up and verify no leaks, then run the engine and make a note of the fuel pressure reading, shut it of nd let it sit, the pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight, if it does the fuel pump is defective as the check valve in the pump has failed, this allows fuel to drain back to the tank and creates a lean condition when the car is 1st started, result, rough running, long cranking times..

Drop in to an Autozone, or Pep Boys, or similar big parts store & they will usually scan for codes free. This will hopefully eliminate all the guess work, or at least point everyone in right direction for better diagnosis. If not obvious from codes what the problem is, get back to us and we'll help you out.
