I have a 1988 300E W124. How do I check to make sure that when the accelerator is at the floor, the throttle is opened completely?

I think my loss of power could be due to the throttle not opening completely when I floor the accelerator (even after I hit the kickdown switch and the car downshifts).

In other words, the car is not very "peppy"...I have this theory because there seems to be about an inch of free play in the accelerator - I can press on the accelerator about an inch without opening the throttle - therefore, I am thinking that maybe when I floor the accelerator the throttle is NOT opened completely, thus, it feels like my car doesn't have enough power?

Thanks in advance.
