Question about 1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
First I would look at the neutral safety switch. See if it will start when you put it in neutral. Recently you make any work repair there?
The most likely problem is a leak in the fuel system, allowing air to enter. With the engine not running, look at the bubble in the line entering the pre-filter - this is the line going from the right-rear corner of the aluminum filter mount block going to the fuel heater in the engine block. If there is more than about 1" of air in there, you likely have a leak. These cars are notorious for air introduction due to old and faulty o-rings and fuel lines, symptoms range from serious lack of power, hard starting, rough idle etc.
Another common problem is a bad shut-off valve on the injection pump. There is almost certainly nothing wrong with the pump itself.
Test it and tell us news.

It took Mercon Dextron III.
Of course, MD IV, V or Mutli-Vehicle would be better (the new multi-vehicle formula is what is being widely recommended by all nowadays).

You cannot accuratly check the freon level without compressor engaged. Without car running that needle better be pegged or its low. Charge with car running with dials set to max cool with fan speed on hi. Slowly while charging with compressor engaged bring it up to 2K rppms while filling. Should take around 3 cans. Get the stuff with stop leak.
