Bad ECU, bad ignition module, coil, etc.

Do you get spark in and and out of the coil?

if it has a dist cap (easily accesable) you may want to pull it off and check to see thats its turning while you crank the engine over ?

a new distributor has been installed, thinking it was the problem. the coil checks out okay on the meter. by the way, it is a manual trans on the '84 mercedes 190e. the injector is working too. car does have a problem starting even with a new starter.

Has the computer and all grounds to it checked for damage?
