Cranking HARD ?
No Cranking ?
Smell Gas ?
Cranks Fast ?
POSSIBLE - * Battery dead or weak (alternator may not be charging right or gone bad) . * No fire coil pack(s) / rotor button distributor cap Faulty . * Cranks fast ( getting fire but no gas )
FIXES - * JUMP START IF POSSIBLE and if car starts take off 1 battery cable if car dies the ALTERNATOR IS BAD . * Pull 1 plug wire off and check for a hot spark or any spark for that matter .
Could be multiple things with multiple fixs need more info for a more precise answer. Start with the basics POWER +/- , FUEL , AIR , FIRE

Check your spark plug wires, using insulated pliers pull the wires off one at a time to see it each one has spark. You may have bad wires ore even a bad cap even if it is new. Since some cylinder are firing I think you have a wire problem.
This car uses a basic distributor. The coil gets power from the shut-down relay brown-red wire and the cam sensor is inside the distributor. The cam sensor gets power from the key switch brown-white wire. The relay is powered from a fuse with battery power and turned on by the key switch.
Does it use spark plug wires or individual ignition coils for the each plug?. My 98 intrepid uses coils and occasionally I have to change them out cause it would start to miss when normal temperature was achieved. If it uses wires, try replacing them, along with the spark plugs.
you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.
