I've got a low milage '93 400 E w124, which I've just bought. After checking the wiring loom I replaced it with a used one (manufactured in 2008) which seems to be in excellent condition from looking at it.

When all was replaced, which was quite straight forward, the car started to misfire. The exhaust gases do smell a lot from unburnt fuel, which it did before as well to be honest.

Where should I start the trouble shooting, any ideas on how to best go about doing this?

Check the loom again.

After that look at the distributer caps and rotor arms for corrosion.
