Hardly Starting 300E Tulsa, Ok

Hey there everyone, I have a '88 300E auto with about 150k miles on it thats hard to cold start. I have to turn it over at least 5-10 times before it will catch and run. When I try and start it it will catch for about a second but then fall on its face. After its warm it driven ok but its been dying on me and wont start.

So I hope I can find some info to get pointed in the right direction here, thanks for having me!
