Crank shaft position sensor is bad. This is the most common failure. Its location is on the rear drivers side of engine, where the transmission bell housing mates to the engine, only one small bolt and a two prong electrical connector hold it on. Usually will not throw a trouble code. If you remove it you can test it with an ohm meter, will have an erratic reading or read open loop, can malfunction intermittently or permanently after parking vehicle and won't restart. Applying some heat source to it during ohm testing with a hot air heat gun will usually cause the sensor to read open loop if your not sure if its bad or not. This reply is probably way to late, but I just happened to come accross it while online. Harry (master certified MBZ diagnostic tech)

The timing of firing or tuning of the engine is needed with the Distributor to be checked for worn out contact points. As a precaution clean the fuel & air filters too.....sodeep

try turning the wheel slightly while taking it out of park. it may also have a brake interlock system which would require you to put your foot on the brake before putting it in gear.
