LOSS OF POWER AND BACKFIRE WHEN COLD

1995 Mitsubishi Mirage

Engine Performance problem
1995 Mitsubishi Mirage 4 cyl Manual 109000 miles

My car is extremely hard to start in mornings especially after having sat over the weekend. Once it starts it has no power while in gear and backfires until it seems to blow whatever it bogging it up out then runs fine rest of day. What causes this?

IT could be a few things. HAs the check engine light come on? WHen was the last tune up? Has fuel pump pressure been tested? Fuel filter?
