1997 mercedes e320 rides like a mechanical bull when i accelerate

hi, i have a 1997 MB E320. whenever i would accelerate it immediately the cars feels like it is getting choked. it's like riding a mechanical bull. the rpm fluctuates from 20 then goes to 45. however, when i gradually accelerate starting at 10rpm the engine is fine. what may be the problem? where can i get a repair manual for this?

I could be totally wrong but my old C Class did something similar once and it was the MAF Sensor Mass Airflow Sensor.... maybe do a search for that on here and read other ppl's symptoms etc

It cost me about $2-300 to replace that a few years ago
