Do you get no spark in just one plug or in all of them? If you are getting spark in some plugs but not others, you likely have a cracked distributor cap, burned electrodes in the cap or bad wires. If none of the wires are getting spark it _may_ still be the cap if the center electrode is melted. Check the cap and if it appears to be good you can check for spark from the coil. Be CAREFUL though when doing this. For a very low price you can get an ignition spark tester from your local auto parts store. In the US they run between 8.99 and 15.99. Simply find a ground which is away from the coil and connect the ground clip to it. Then disconnect the coil wire from your distributor cap, but leave it connected to the coil. The end of the tester is like a spark plug tip. Snap it into the coil wire firmly and turn your vehicle over while watching the tester for a spark. If you get spark from your coil, but not through the cap to the wires, you will likely need to replace the cap and rotor even if they seem to be good. If this still does not solve the problem, your distributor itself may be done for. Just remember to use caution when testing as the coil does produce enough amperage to give you a nasty shock, especially in wet or damp conditions. Follow instructions on the packaging of the tester and you should do well.
