hard starting

I have a problem with hard starting...when cold you have to crank it over several times and when it does start it misses and runs rough untill it get a little heat in the engine...when hot it stars and dies then you have to crank it for aprox. 30 sec. and once again it runs rough for a few seconds..any ideas..ive checked for vac. leaks and have none..car has set for about 2 years..its a 1978 450slc amg...
