Little power after cold starts: 84 190E 2.3

Somedays I wish for the old manual chokes on my Triumphs!

My 170K 190E doesnt start up without a little coaxing/pumping of the pedal on cold mornings. (you'd think it had a carb) Also, I dont get much power at all from the engine on cold mornings. I purposely avoid a large hill and take a longer way to the train station in the morning, so I dont have to creep up the slope. Once it warms up , its acceptable.

Do you think its my cold start valve? Any thoughts folks?
