First thing to check would be the timing belt.

Truck wont start


Check for spark at the distributor if no spark check or replace coil pack. also check to see distributor is turning while engine cranking, if not, possible worn out or broken gear tooth on shaft inside engine.
if distributor turns, check for burnt or worn out points and/or contacts on distributor cap.

Engine turns but wont get any spark


The GL has two timing belts. It the one that drives the distributor breaks, then no spark. Crank the engine while watching the distributors rotor, if it does not move, then it is a broken belt.

I suspect either the distributor or timing belt went south.
Can you remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor is turning while you crank the engine over?
if the rotor doesnt turn... , its the timing belt.

check for spark , but chances are , its the distributor... I've seen many honda distributors go bad .

Well, something is missing. Your engine needs fuel, ignition, and compression to run. You need to findout which of these systems is malfunctioning before anybody can tell you why your engine won't start.
If there is no spark, I would check the ignitor in the distributor first. There are other possible causes, but this isthe most common.

If there is no fuel, I would suspect a bad fuel pump. (you can check this by spraying a SMALL amount of starting fluid in the intake and see if the engine fires.

If there is no spark and no fuel, I would suspect a broken timing belt.

Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.
