MERCEDES BENZ 300E CRANKSHAFT PROBLEM

1990 Mercedes Benz 300e • 120,000 miles

Car dies driving for about 4 hours and then starts right back up, replaced fuel relay and fuel filter no change, replaced crankshaft sensor but now I cant get it to not stall out at stops and chugs when putting into gear from park and dies if I dont pump the pedal, sometimes it dies anyway but starts back up the first few times, but after stalling out over 4 times it wont start back up just cranks, finally got it to start again about an hour later. I read that I cant adjust the timing on this car so is it fuel mixture or can I adjust the timing by moving the distributor? Or is it a bad crankshaft position sensor that was put in? Or is there another adjustment that needs to be made after the CPS was installed?
