Car doesn't accelerate well until about 10-15 mins of driving

Asked by Sep 09, 2017 at 02:24 PM about the 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car had been sitting a while (6 mos) and when I went to start it up again,
It starts and idles fine but if you press the gas pedal, the car will die. I figured
the gas had gotten old and maybe clogged the fuel filter. I siphoned out the
gas, changed the filter and put in new gas. It still does the same thing. I can
limp the car along for about 10 mins when it will finally not die if I push the
gas pedal. It still doesn't accelerate like it used to. What should I look at
doing? Thanks.
