ROUGH STARTING MBENZ C200

1920 Mercedes Benz Other

My car is a MBenz C200, 1999 with 200 000kms on the clock. I live in a costal town in South Africa.
When I start my car especially in the morning and sometimes when the engine is cold, I have a rough idle. When I switch off are restart the idle is fine.
However, on take off the car sometimes is very sluggish and I have to pull off the road switch off and
start again and then it is fine. Sometimes when I use
the kick down even though the car is warm it gets
sluggish and behaves as if it is starving of fuel.

Please help as this post is rather urgent.

Thanks
