We don't have designated diesel section and cdi on W210 are very rare. I would advise you to repost the topic in General section when owners of those engines in other models can give you direct advise.
Generally pushing crap down the intake is never a good idea, but soft dirt should not kill the engine. The only way to kill turning diesel is not go give it fuel. Check under the hood for a plug you could disconnect working on the engine. Did you scan it for codes? Checking the fuel pressure would be the first thing to troubleshoot.

everything is ok now engine running, took vacume pipe off egr valve got my son to bring his car to my house, we then connected his battery to mine with jump leads and gave it a good crank the engine spluttered into life with clouds of black smoke reved the engine for a couple of minutes,then re-conected the vacume hose and took the car for an italian tune up{fast run} the car now starts and runs perfectly......
