If you are not getting any spark to the plugs and everything else is fine than yes it would be the coil pack. also it could be the ecm if your vehicle is equipped with one.

I was having the same problem. I found out my wiring to the coil was in bad shape. The wire from the starter to the coil was messed up. So I got my mechanic to come over and he by-passed it with a wire from the coil to the alternator, but you have to run back into the car start it then run back out and take of the wire, or simply just have two people. If that's not it..... then maybe new points or condenser or a new distributor cap? Just make sure you check out the simple things first, I made the mistake with buying new parts.

Open the oil fill cap and see if the cam(s) are turning while it is cranking, if not, then the prob is the timing belt.
they are not VERY expensive to buy, but they can be a MAJOR pain to R/R if you are not well equipted with the right tools/knowledge.
