This engine is timed at t.d.c.. With the crank at 0 degrees you will start with your intake cam. this cam is hollow and advances( it actually moves to the right after 2500 rpm ) because it has a distributerless ign.. The timing marks for the cams are holes in the back of the gear flange where you can put a small 3 or 4mm. punch through the back of the flange resting the punch on the top of the head. the hole will be to your right on the intake and to your left on the exhaust( outside towards the manifold) When you get the intake cam timed hold the cam and turn the gear to the left as far as you can( if you look at the top of the advancer you can see the mechanism resting against the housing) If you do not the cam will over advance and hit a piston. Time the exhaust cam and put in your tensioner( I always reset the tensioner by knocking out the insert and starting it at the first detent( replace if possible). turn the engine around by hand and double check your marks you may have to move one of your cams a tooth to the left or right. Good luck

Mercedes has a cold start valve to spray extra fuel to assist the ignition when the temperature is cold. This is the problem with the cold start valve is not opened when it needed. There are 2 possible causes:
1- The valve is bad.
2- The coolant temperature sensor is bad.
The valve part is expensive and labor is not cheap. The first economic way to address is to replace the coolant temperature sensor. This sensor gives a different resistance reading as temperature changed. When it is bad, it give an erratic reading at cold temperature so the ECM could not recognize to give a signal to open the Cold start valve.
