Hello. It sounds like you are saying that the car is starting but dying when you try to pull away. If the car is starting and idling, then the crank position sensor is probably alright. Usually a malfunctioning sensor results in a car that doesn’t start at all. A 2001 Mercedes has a very sophisticated self-diagnostic system and whatever is wrong is probably something that can be found in the trouble codes.

If you want to have a thorough testing and inspection of the starting problem so that this can be repaired correctly.
