Engine vacuum system on a 1976 Mercedes Benz 450 SLC. Transmission behaves erratically/jumpy when cold + cold engine idle takes at least a minute to work after starting, I can't take foot off gas peddle sooner or it will stall. Could it be a vacuum advance issue on the engine? Both problems dissapear when you reach operating temp. Have checked every vacuum line I can find, made some replacements and reconnections - and ended up with a slight improvement. Any tips on what to do next? Thanks, John
