Engine no start on 1988 mercedes benz 190e

Hello, You could have a stopped up fuel filter or a bad fuel pump or bad gas etc. If you overfilled the trans, that would explain the oil loss. It will also aerate the trans oil and make the trans not work properly. You didn't mention what vacuum hose was broken. This could also cause the engine to not run properly. You need to check the fuel pressure and supply and go from there. Make sure that the trans fluid is 10mm below the mark on dipstick when cold and on the mark when warm.
If fuel pressure and supply is correct you need to check the exhaust system for restriction.

If you find this info to be correct, please enter a (fixya) rating.
