Smile '90 300e starting issues

I'm new to the ShopForum and also the proud 2nd owner of a '90 300e. The car has only about 75K miles and it's only problems are that the A/C doesn't work and it doesn't start right up. The A/C I will deal with later. But it almost acts like carburated engine when starting. If i just turn the key it starts and then dies. If I pump the pedal and start it, it starts up and I then give a bit more gas to get it idling smoothly. It idles and runs perfect, but does have a bit of a sluggishness when pressing the gas while driving. It does take off when floored though. Any clues would be appreciated. Also, is there an aftermarket repair manual for the 300e? Thanks.
