If ou are not getting a spark from any plug wire...then your electronic engine control module (ECM) is bad.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender

if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

Changed distributor And put new one in got it out of time

possibly all you got wrong is the firing order for the plug wires. Put the engine on no 1 firing as per the timing mark and see which plug lead that rotor button is pointing to. Use that as no 1 lead and adjust the rest of the leads to suit the firing order. IF by chance that the rotor button points between the contacts in the cap the pull the distributor and turn the rotor button until when you have the distributor back in ,the button is pointing to a plug lead contact and adjust the firing order from that.

distributor cap and rotor problem - there is your problem. If you do not put those suckers back in the same exact position, with the exact same markings, it will cause the car to fire the spark plugs at different times, causing miss fire and some times no firing at all.

Cap and rotor

my guess, is you did NOT replace the wires 1by1.
and messed up the firing order. (engine size not posted)
you bought one of this china,no-name POS rotors that fit 3 ways?
or the cap is on backwards
or the wire terms(HV) not seated.

ill assume the dizzy was never unbolted.

never power wash an engine, you force water to places that never must be...
let it dry for a day or 2.

what does FIRE to plugs mean.
i used a grounded tests spark plug , at the end of each spark plug
and there is no spark.

i ask that, because some posters say that , but only mean
the cylinders are dead, and call it no fire.
takes spark, compression and injection and timing to fire.
4 things.

Plug number 5 misfiring

Put in a new spark plug set (might as well do all of them) and new spark plug wires. They're wear items and eventually have to be changed, so now's a good time. You might also change the cap and rotor - they're what trigger the plugs to fire. If they're corroded or worn down (which does happen) it will cause problems. I'd lean more toward the plug and wire though - if the cap and rotor are worn, I'd expect that all the cylinders would be firing funny.

No spark from plugs. changed plugs, rotor and distributor, cables, and primary coil.

i would start with the basics- did you make sure you followed the correct firing order when you installed your new plug wires? when you changed the cap/rotor did you notice any track marks inside the old cap? was the old rotor burnt/corroded? ive got a 97 ram and the cap is a b*tch to get to being buried in the back, could you have inadvertently moved the rotor off its timing mark? mis-aligned the crank sensor when installing your new cap? i would recheck how the cap was installed, just because you were able to position it proper and tightened down the screws doesnt mean that you didnt accidently pinch the wires on the crank sensor, or turned the rotor off its mark. also when pressing on the plug wires on the cap did you look for the "1" mark on the cap? this is your reference point for firing order. im not sure these are you problems, but rechecking your work to make sure something wasnt knocked off-kilter, or wrong plug wire placement would confirm the problem lies other than what was replaced. i hope this helps
