trouble starting on a cold start

ok heres the deal. ive got a 90 laser turbo fwd
on a cold start, it takes a few tries to get the car started. Once the car starts, it sputters and acts like its going to die. It does this for about 5 to 10 minutes until it warms up. when i first start it my air/fuel guage is out, which tells me something is wrong with the o2 sensor. However, when the car is fully warm the air/fuel guage works fine and the car runs good.
A few days ago i had been checkin stuff under the hood, when i had noticed that one of the black wires on the o2 sensor was completely off. and the other wires were all rotten looking so i cut the plug off went to a junkyard and got one and just tied the wires together for the time being such as:
