I'm going to guess TIMING BELT. Fairly common with this engine. Thankfully, they are a "NON-interference" motor so it didn't do any damage when the belt snapped. Just need to replace it. Should cost around $300-$400 depending on where you are. Good luck!

I had same problem and it turned out to be the "Spark Generator(module)" which was size of small wallet and can be seen under the hood in plain sight. Parts store price was $300-400. Salvage yard had box full of used ones @ $20-30 a piece.

SOURCE: 93 toyota celica gt. engine turns over but wont spark

My experience with Bosch ignition system (found on european cars) is the spark control is sent by the ignition module. The ignition module has to receive an input usually from a crankshaft sensor. This is usually near the crankshaft pulley on many cars. I am currently working on a 04 Toyota RAV4 and it has exactly that. If your sensor wiring gets loose or a bad wire then the computer won't signal for spark. This may not be your problem but it sounds like it probably is.
(By the way on my Alfa Romeo it is a sensor around the bell housing that senses the teeth on the flywheel) Good luck!

First thing is to ck for a spark, see if she has good spark. Next remove the cap and watch the rotor button as it turns, have someone crank the engine to see, looking for which direction. Next turn the engine by hand looking for any marks on the crankshaft pully. aligning any marks should be #1 or #4 piston firing position. you will have to do this trial and error. Next if your rotor buton turns to the left align the marks on your pully and put your # 1 plug wire at the port in the cap which the rotor button is pointing at, then next put the #3 plug wire in,next #4 and last in turn would be #2. The firing order is 1,3,4,2.which ever direction the rotor button turns. if it starts and runs ruff you are out of phase 180 degs. move the wires two ports in the cap as the rotor turns.

sounds like you need an ignighter which controls spark and it can be found in the distributor under the cap it should have a plug (wire harness) on it.

Sounds like a timing issue. The best thing would be to pull the trouble code from the computer since the check engine light is on. If you do not have access to a code reader then start by checking the timing order and the spark plugs. If these are OK then check the distrubutor cap and rotor. Check the cap for cracks and corrosion. If everything is still good, then you may need a camshaft position sensor if the car has one. If the car is not equiped with the sensor, you may want to find a new or used distributor.

You guys are having an ignition misfire. Start by replacing the plugs, (ONLY use NGK plugs on a Japanese vehicle. There's a reason Bosch plugs are so cheap)  and gap them correctly. If you have a cap and rotor in your distributor, replace them, too. If that doesn't do it, check the plug wires for cracks, scoring, or arcing (will look like chalk dust).
After all that, check the wiring from the coil and the coil itself. It could be something as simple as a corroded contact that needs to be cleaned.
Good luck!
