1988 260E

My 1988 260E intermittently stalls when slowing down for a turn or when rolling to a stop & starts back up instantly. Replaced fuel pump check valve,
fuel filter, fuel pump relay, calibrated air flow meter, replaced injectors and air filter, with no permanent fix. Also cold start problem; manual acceleration required until warm up. Replaced cold start valve this morning but with no change. These seem to be common 260E issues. Would appreciate feed back from anyone who solved the stalling & cold start problems.

Water Temperature sensor? Situated at rear of engine.
Vaccum hoses?
IACV hoses?
Fuel filter on side of Fuel distributor.
Checked your O.V.P relay?
Check earthing point near IACV valve on manifold for corrosion.
