96 C280 will not start

I am in need of some major help!
I recently replaced the head gasket on my 96 C280 and put it all back together, the car started first time and ran fine, I drove it around the block, everything was working great. Sat idling, looking for leaks and it just stopped. Took a long time of cranking to restart and ran fine - sat idling again and then it stopped again. Tried everything and it won't start. It will crank with the motor turning over, it has fuel to the rail. But will not fire off. Any ideas?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks

My guess would be Crankshaft Position/Angle Sensor or one of the three Coils. Check the connections first. After that, I would worry about internal breakdown of the insulating material inside the engine wire harness, especially in the areas that are subject to the most engine heat.

Good luck!
