Question 92 E300 Fixer (almost)

I inherited a 92 E 300 4matic, my wife drove it for 6 months and then had a wreck which took out quite a bit of the front end. I let it sit for about four years before I finally took to getting it back on the road. I have replaced the distributer cap and rotors, spark plugs and cables, fuel filter, air filter, radiator, liquids, and so on. I also cleaned the electrical connections with anti-oxidizing contact cleaner. The car is mostly back to running but it sputters on acceleration and often dies when I come to a stop.

Came across the Forum and it looked like it has many intelligent contributors. I learned how to run the DTC tests from the info I have read; but while it says to use pin 1 for ground Black), pin 14 for codes (yellow), and 16 for power (Red)(no female in plug so I just used positive terminal) I get 1 blip which signifies no errors.

I did, however, use the other terminals for codes and got:

Pin 3 I got 4 and 7

Pin 6 I got 3 and 8

I will keep looking for specifics on what the codes mean, but if anyone could help it would be appreciated.
