'78 280CE runs rough after warmed up

'78 280CE runs rough after warmed up
I've had the oil changed, i even tried the 10w40 oil for older cars, i've changed the spark plug wires, the air filter, and i don't think the vacuum is leaking.

once my car is warmed up, especially if it's a hot day, the engine will shake a bit and sometimes the car will stall when stopped at a light. i often have to put it in neutral and give it a little bit of gas at stop lights if i've driven it for a little while and the car has warmed up.

it also doesn't go well from highway driving to city driving.

any ideas?
