Problem...please help

I've noticed that last few times i've started my car for the first time that day, that the engine starts to rumble a bit and doesnt go into full power till a second or two after i start it. The first time i remember i was starting it to go to work in the morning and i turned the key and it just started to rumble and the car shook a bit and then it started(the whole elapsed time was about 2.5 seconds of rumbling). I dont really know if this matters, but i dont drive my C230 that much and i keep it garaged all the time, i have 1200 miles on it so idk if it rumbles because the engine is cool or what? Can someone please give me some kind of opinion on this?

thanks guys..


I asked my friend that has a E500, and he said that it could be the kind of gas im using, but all i put in it is premium from mobile so idk whats going on..[:(]

You note that you don't drive much but didn't say the age of your car. If it sits for long periods of time, perhaps your spark plugs are a bit fouled.

Sometimes mercedes have problems with their Smartkeys...try using the spair key and see if the same think happens. But it might be that the engine is cold if you dont use it that much.
