Grubeguy- you've been a great help, and thanks again for all of your help, I greatly appreciate it. As of now, my car will not run, but when I turn it over, the injectors fire, but it's still not getting fuel. . My pump is a "knock off" brand, and I'm not sure if thats the issue. . I tested the injectors with a test light, and saw that there was no light, so no power to the injectors... I dont want to buy the ECU, and it not be the problem b/c I noticed they were around $500.00 so... Grubeguy, what do ya think?

Oh one more thing, I was researching parts, and I saw something called the "fuel level sending unit", and I was thinking if it's not the ECU, than it could possibly be just that, but thats just an amateur guess... haha! Take care!

I don't think that you know the whole history ,I know why I said that.
He opened several threads,changed his nick, in the past where he came over very badly,he bought that car from a dealer to flip it but it didn't worked out.
Neither he or his mechanic room mate have a clue about cars.
Take a couple Hundred Dollars bring it to a Bosch service and check out what's wrong,that is the right way to go ,but you will see that you can read next year how close he is that the car starts.

Your right, I did buy it to flip it. You know nothing about me, and I support myself and a beautiful son, wrestle in college, pass my classes, and still pay my child support and in this economy my friend, thats not too shabby. Actually, a month from today I will be watched my many celebrities as I fight in Harrahs Casino, so buddy watch your lip pal I have had enough of it. As for the nice guys who have given me there input, I thank you, and really appreciate your help. I plan to keep my MB, and dont worry hot shot, it will be running soon, the only thing I know running now, because of you is my mouth, but dont worry its all good, just be cool, try that.

Well OK then. Let's get back to cars ... Mr B, if it runs when you put gas into the intake, you have a fuel delivery problem. If you're SURE you have fuel at the right pressure and volume going to the injectors, you have either an injector problem or a signal-to-the-injectors problem.

If no fuel, look at the fuel system - the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump, the lines, or the wiring.

How much troubleshooting have you done so far?

I think your right Grubeguy, back to cars. lol I love how my posts are so dramatic, but like seriously, why does that happen to me all of the time? I guess I dont know, maybe its me. haha. Anyway, yes I took the line off of the engine and fuel came spurting out, but there is no power to the injectors. Like I said in previous posts, I believe that it may be the fuel pump, but even if it was a cheap fuel pump im sure it would still atleast run, but crappily? So, I think its an electrical issue, that involves my FI system. Thats all I know, and I will check out what you guys have posted, many thanks. One week, and finals left, then its work time, cant wait!

Uflei, your such a fool man, my roomy knows how to fix cars prob better then you know, hes just not a MB specialist. However, he also thinks that it may be the ECU, right behind the passenger headlight. He teste dthe injectors, and no power, so obviously we have came from it not even turning over, to pretty much JUST About starting, so shut your mouth you moron. Damn, your rude.

I bought a fuel pump (which Im buying a BOSCH one soon), a fuel pump relay, a main relay, cilinoid for the starter, for the brand new built BOSCH starter. Also Uflie- my car under the hood is pretty much ALL BRAND NEW. I hav a box of receipts and my roommate said dude all this under the hood is new, it just broke down and nobody knew how to fix it or something. Really, I feel lucky to have came across it. Good things.
