Loren, I thought I put the year down but I see I forgot. It is a 1997. David Schwarze, thank you for your comments. They were very helpful. I am no drag race fan so acceleration does not bother me. 
At our local sports/foreign car group that met earlier this evening, I was told that the vacuum pump can be very expensive to replace, like $1,000 plus labor. However, another, who owns our local Parts for Imports said it is usually the diaphragm that goes bad & implied they could be rebuilt for a lot less. The June 2007 Old Cars Price Guide shows the E300D in number 3 condition to be worth about $8550 & my Packard in similar condition about $9,900. Edmonds.com shows this Mercedes to be worth about $8,000 retail. I have my Packard advertised in Hemmings but so far, no bites.
