Replace the complete distributor. They are available on Ebay, brand new for a bout $100. or at any auto parts store for a little more. It sounds like the module inside the distributor popped but it could be one of the pick-ups, or maybe the coil as well. Rather than wasting a lot of time and money trying to figure out which one, just get a complete new distributor. It comes complete with a new cap, rotor, module, coil, pick-ups.
These are a very, very common problem.

Ok, then you probably have fuel pressure. The next things are whether the injectors are firing and whether you have spark. You can try spraying some starting fluid in the intake and crank it. If it starts for a second and then stops, it means you have spark. If it doesn't, then it is a spark issue.
That could be a computer issue, or a sensor, or back to fuses/electrical intermittent connections.

SOURCE: fuel pump or relay
be very careful using starting fluid, the engine can get damage very easily if to much is applied.
remove you air filter and get a small cap full of gas about 1 oz. pour this into the carb, then get back and start, if it does die again repeat the proceedure, if you can get it to run after doing this 3-4 times, then that means your fuel is syfening back to the tank, probably thru the fuel pump, this is only if you have a mechanical pump. if it runs after this proceedure, id say your pump is bad.
if you have an electric pump, which is probably in the tank, check you fuses. if not in the tank and it runs after this proceedure, your pump is probably bad.
before any of the above check to see if you have a external fuel filter, if you do, remove it but make sure it goes back on exactly the same way it came off. check the fuel filter by blowing thru it, in the direction the fuel flows from the tank to the engine, if its hard to blow thru, replace it then see if your problem is resolved.
if none of the above work then most likely your fuel pump is bad.
i dont know of any vehicles that use a relay, but thats not to say you dont have one on your vehecile. if you do, use a volt tester or light tester and check to see if the relay is opening and closing with power on and off.
hope this helps, good luck

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.
