It sounds like you have had quite a few people trying to help you with this problem. Based on my experience, it sounds like to me you need to try replacing the rotor button. I noticed that your replaced the distrubutor but said that you didn't replace the button. I know that it is a simple part but I've had that stupid rotor button cause me a headache and lots of $$$ when it was just a few bucks. Give it a shot and I think that you will find it fixes your problem for you. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

You'll have to explain more, to many things could have happened. What happened when it first cut off on you? Did it seem like any grinding or anything seized. Any abnormal smoke?
Check your fuel pump first, then fuel filter, cap and rotor wires, plugs.

Check if there is a fuse for the starter system. Its possible that you have a blown fuse in there... you've already replaced almost every ignition component. There is no reason for your ignition not to create any spark at all... so im thinking that you car might have a fuse for the ignition system or starter system.

You just change the spark plug and check it because there is no spark from spark plug just change the new spark plug and check it
