'86 300E starting headaches

My 1986 300E, when the weahter is cold, starts for a second and dies. I have to try it as much as 18 times before she idles. If I try to give it gas, even after she runs, it dies, unless I let her warm up first. Once it takes the fuel the first time, it runs great!! New plugs, fuel filter, and air filter. Any Ideas?
