W124 hard to start, rough idle/acceleration

Lately, my 260E has been very hard to start when it is hot. If it is cold, it fires right up, but if it has been running and i try to start it, it is almost impossible. It tries to start (vibrates for a second) then cuts off. It will do this several times before starting. This is quite embarassing in a crowded parking lot.
Also, the acceleration is not smooth. It feels like the engine is pushing and pulling, especially at higher RPM's and it does it worse when the air conditioner is on.
