Trouble starting 1991 300 CE

I have trouble starting the coupe. First, the starter turns over several times before firing. I have to pump the gas several times to start. Second, once the engine starts it dies sudenly unless I give it plenty of gas. After this I runs perfectly. Any suggestions much appreciated.

Things to check

First, check cold start valve, air filter, throttle valve, and fuel filter.
