Since you haven't gotten any replies, I assume that none of the traditional solutions would solve your problem, so I'll give it a stab...I am going back to experiences I've had with some non-MBs I've owned.

I don't really know, but is yours carbureted or fuel injected? If carbureted, it might be a bad accelerator diaphram...if FI, then maybe a bad injector.

You may even have a dirty fuel filter.

Have you checked your spark plug wires and your ignition coil(s)?

I had a Mazda that did just that, and it turned out to be a cracked air diaphram...are your intakes solid, i.e., no cracks, leaks etc.

I had a Z-24 with a bad air flow meter that would not maintain an idle until that was replaced.

Just a start...hope you pinpoint the problem soon!
