You need fuel, spark & timing as the basics to start your motor. (there are other factors, but you need to look at the basic 3)

1.Check to see if you have fuel coming out of both injectors into the throttle body.
2. Check to see if you have spark. This is usually done with a spark tester
3. Once you have verified fuel & spark 100%, then you need to look at timing.

How do you replace the distributor cap and rotor on your 1989 Mercedes?

You don't. It has a D.I.S. ignition system and has no distributor or rotor. There are three coils mounted over spark plugs under coil pack cover (center top of motor) Each coil fires 2 pistons. They are not replaced as a tune up item. They are only replaced if faulty. Spark plugs should be replaced every 15,000 miles.

Check the timing and the pointsAnswerWhen you change the plugs and cap and wires you have to make sure you get the right wires to the right plugs that's usally the probelm is that the wires don't get put back with the right plugs. AnswerMake sure the before you remove the rotor note which way rotor is pointing and make sure that you install the new rotor pointing in the same direction. The it should wok if you haven't removed the distributor. If you don't remember which way the rotor was pointing just try switching the rotors position. Note: Not all distributor rotors can be mounted in different ways and some only mount one way.
