Just bought an '87 260 E class. Just wonder if they always have this slow of acceleration. I live in an area where there are a lot of blind intersections are and you basically have to pull slowly out into them and hope nobody is coming. Sometimes there is, and the only thing to do is put the pedal to the floor and get out of there before there's an accident. I gotta say I'm not really too convinced that the Benz would be able to do this. The accelerator is very heavy, probably the heaviest in any car ive eve had. You have to push pretty hard to get it all the way to the floor, and even then there is still a delay of a few sections before the engine reacts to this.

Is this normal for this car? Or is there something wrong with it? Would getting a fuel injection cleaning help? They have worked wonders on my other car. What are my options here? Keep in mind I bought the car for $2000 USD, so I'm not really looking to put tonnes of money into it.
