The most common problem with mercedes stalling out is the crankshaft position sensor. When it dies out and you let it sit for a while does it restart, or refuse to start/

The car starts and die's quickly
Mercedes Mechanic: Pete, Mechanic replied 6 months ago

If it starts and dies right away it sounds more like a fuel related problem. Is it possible for you to get the car scanned for codes? You don"t want to start replacing parts until you are sure of what it needs.
