Try spraying some starter fluid into the air intake. If it starts then dies, it may be a fuel delivery problem. Your fuel pump may be working but is weak. Also check fuel filter to insure it's not clogged. If the car was run completely out of gas sometimes residue in the gas tank can get sucked up into the sending unit.

Take a fuel pressure test on it , also see if your timing is right , you may still have a bad fuel pump in the tank ?. take a little ether and spray it into the intake and see if it starts that way if it does your fuel pump it bad,

1990 Mercedes Benz 420 SEL computer problem? wont


This could be caused by a faulty Crank position sensor. The computers are expensive for this and not something that commonly fails on these. Have the fuel pumpchecked for operation and pressure. Check for spark at the plugs. Then we can procede further if you would like.

1980 mercedes v8 gas, fuel problem running?


If the car has a carb (not fuel injected) try removing the air filter cover and pouring a small amount of gas down the carb . Now try and start it aND see if it will start. If it starts and runs for a 10-30 seconds and then dies, it is a fuel delivery problem. Car should start if you add gas unless the car is being flooded out. I can't really help you with a fuel injection system except to suggest to replace the fuel filter and see what happens. Just remember you need spark, fuel and air to make combustion. YOu say the car fires so you have spark. I would focus on the fuel delivery.
