Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Merceds E250 diesel (CDI). It only starts for 3 seconds and dies. There is nothing showing on the diagnostic system and the auto-electrician has failed to identify the fault. Assist pls. There asked me to replaced injectors, that did not solve the problem. I bought and fitted a second hand engine after the original failed on water coolant (overheating). None of the mechanics I have approached know the problem. One suspects the engine gasket, but not sure
