Look for a water hose with a hole in it near where you saw the smoke. That may be the problem.

Yes, the injector pump needs to be timed with special service tools. Find a qualified mechanic to do the job or you could damage the engine.

I have a 1998 mercedez c280 with a dead battery. I am unable to get into the trunk with the switch or my key

Mercedes Benz is the most service oriented company in the business. Whether you are the original owner or a secondary owner give the local Mercedes Dealer a call and they will dispatch a truck with a technician immediately. More than likely there will be no charge.
I know the same thing happened to me with a dead battery. Don Rasmussen is absolutely unbelievable locally. I couldn't believe the no charge. The Tech stated " That's the service you paid for".
Best regards,
