I bought a distributor and a rotor button and plugs to replace on this car. I changed the plug wires and took off the distributor. I can see the rotor button and I know it is only held in by 1 screw but I don't know what I have to take off to get to it(if anything at all). Can somebody please tell me how to take it off?

If the coil is good and giving out spark and your ICM is good the cap can have a missing button which will not allow spark to go to the spark plugs through the plug wires do replace the distributor cap and rotor and spark plug wires
If you have changed the plugs, wires, and distributor, then you should check to see if the coil is putting off a spark. you can do that with a wire grounding it to the engine. It is most likely the problem. If it is putting off a good spark, and your rotor button and distributor cap are good, then for some reason the computer is not telling the coil to put out a spark. On that new of a car, the ignition is electronically controlled.
the only thought that comes to mind is to re-check your spark plug gap, the reason is that if the gap is slightly larger, plug efficiency will drop, thus fuel economy and power, please confirm that some platinum plugs the gap is not adjustable, (.044 thousands) good luck!
The plug wires are different lengths for different spark plugs. The best way to not get messed up is to do one wire at a time. Unplug old wire from distributor and plug, compare it to the new ones, find the new one that is the same length and replace. You don't want to get the wires mixed up. Hope this helped.
Most of the handas have a pick up inside the distributor behind the rotor button take off the black cover inside the distributor and two screws hold it on with two wires on it. If that go's bad your car will not start i would start there
