It is not hard to change. They are usually located on the bottom back of the engine. I have had cars that didn't spark and the crank solved everything. Others, it didn't work. Don't know why, guess it all depends on the computer reading it all. Your ECM controls all the ignition comonents and timing. Have you tried putting in another? Sometimes, if it doesn't read the crank, it will shut down the spark. Some do, some don't. Can't be 100% sure but it has worked before. I usually tell people to go to a junkyard when they have no spark and have been trying to fix it for some time. Get all the parts you need for cheap. A bad cam sensor can cause no spark and the distributor itself.
