My 300E has 159K miles, the engine runs strong, but I'm curious on the rough idling and shaking after the engine cranks up.

Starting the car is no problem (only needs 1 sec to start the engine), the rough idling/shaking/hesitation last approx. 5-7 sec. After that the idle smooths out as if the engine wasn't running.

I've found out to prevent the problem during start ups is to apply a little gas, do you recommend this?

I've also noticed this same problem in my uncle's 89 and 90 190E 2.6..

Is there a way to get rid of this problem?

So, if anyone out there can assist Thanks!!!
