Pulled this out of a dark spot in my mind... check that the coil mount screws have not pushed through to the inside of the cap causing an internal short, pulling spark to ground. if distributor is new pickup coil should be ok but check for broken wires there just in case. Also if you have a tach, disconnect it from distributor. If internally shorted it won't get spark.

I had the same exact problem with my 1998 Explorer and it was the Idle Air Control. You can try to remove and clean it but it won't last very long. I replaced it myself in 5 minutes and an expense of $80. Hope this helps.

You may want to check a few other componants before you write-off the ECM. It could be it but its not common. The cam or crank positioning sensor, the ignition pick-up, the MAP or MAF sensor, And possibly the ignition switch.
