There are so many things, I recommend an OBDII scan That will eliminate a lot of guesswork and buying parts you don't need. Many parts houses will scan it free. Don't buy anything ..yet. Electrical parts can't be returned. Get the code(s) and bring them back here....one of us will be happy to help. Or drop me a PM.

One of the sensors is probably not sending the right signal to the ECU and when cold it's running lean, it needs a bit more fuel in the mix cold and when warm it's running with the right mix of 14.7:1. Problem is which one..MAF, MAP. o2..and more. That's what the scan will tell.
