['93 190e 2.6] Unpredictable Starting

Hello everyone.

Another mystery that I was hoping you could solve for me! When I start my car after it has been sitting for awhile, it sometimes starts on the first try, but kinds of "chugs" for a second or two before it begins to idle like it normally does. Most other times when I start, it will chug and then die. Upon starting the second time, it starts right up with no chugging and no problems at all. It idles great when on the road -- no problems.

Someone told me that this is normal and that his MB has done this for as long as he's had it. I still thought I would post to get your expert thoughts if there might be a problem.

Thanks again for all of your help.
