Engine Performance problem
1990 Mercedes Benz 300ce 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 50,000 miles

1. If ether is fed into the air inlet, the engine fires.

On the electrical side -
a) The ECU has been checked out and is OK.
b) Coil replaced
c) Plugs and leads replaced
d) Battery peplaced
e) Voltage overload replaced
f) Top dead centre sensor replaced.
g) Rotor button and spark suppressors replaced
h) Immobiliser removed to check if it at fault. It was not. Replaced
On the fuel side -
A) Filters replaced
B) Tank removed and was clean
C) Fuel pumps replaced 1 years ago.
D) EHA replaced
E) Recon fuel divider fitted

None of fixed the problem.
Any help appreciated
