Unhappy 2.3 190E 8V Problems

I have a 1985 2.3 190E with auto transmission. The car is new to me - my first Benz. It starts hard, like the battery is low. I replaced the battery and it started fine once. Subsequent starts have been difficult. There is also a slight miss at 2000 RPM and when I put the car in gear it stalls. I know the car is running rich and that the timing has been messed with and may very well be quite off. One other strange thing.. It sounds like there is coolant swashing back and fourth inside my dash. All help will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
