I am new and need help

From Gardendale Alabama. I purchased a 1982 380SL. Love the car. I am making the transition from ground pounding asphalt bubbling american muscle cars, love those Hemi's, the real ones from the sixties I mean, to the classy look and ride of the Mercedes Benz. My 82 380SL runs great untill it warms up. Then it gets weak, slow to accelerate and shifts hard. Engine is not missing just slow. Also is slightly flooding at idle when first cranked and is cold but acclerates good and shifts smooth until it warms up. I changed the oxygen sensor but did not help. I am just getting into learning about the sensors and jetronic system. Can anyone steer me in the right direction.
