Question about Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
Have you checked compression? you need to check the valve timing sounds like you might have jumped time. the coolant temp. sensor might give some starting problems although it would be rare but if worried about the sensor un plug it and jump the plug in this will force a high temp. reading and turn off the cold start circuit. but i think i would forget about the electronics and start checking the mechanical components. i think your problem is a little deeper then just the fuel system.
check these things out and get back with me and i will try to help you get to the bottom of this problem.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Even though you have spark, I suspect that it's too weak to burn fuel that's why it floods. I strongly suggest that you replace the distributor coil. To access the distributor coil, you will need to remove the distributor cap and rotor.
Once you remove them, you can gain access to the distributor coil. Take note, it's gonna be messy for oil on the coil can be expected. Once you replaced the distributor coil you'll surely have good current supply to the plugs. This will surely eliminate the fuel flooding issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
