jerk at cold start

When I try a cold start in the morning I get a jerk, doesn't turn over but sounds like starter motor is fighting a back fire. Next try starts and idles but I can hear some missing. Driving half a block, by then all ok. Any ideas what's causing it? I have no CEL. I OBDII scanned it and have pending on p0154 (bank 2 o2) and p1189 (bank 2 fuel system). Any ideas?

You'd be a jerk too if you were that cold.

Sorry, couldn't resist
