Hello there:
You may want ro remove the crankshaft and camshaft sensor and use a multimeter and set it to the lowest ohms setting and then touch the two ends of the meter on the pins of the sensor you are testing and see what reading you have it should read 0 then have somebody wave their hand rapidly in front of it and you should read a fairly high reading if not it is faulty and should be replaced i had the same thing happen to mine and it was my camshaft sensor and the wiring was bad too so may want to check it really close ok
Best regards Mike

If you have no spark from the distributor, try backtracking the primary side (away from the spark plugs) to see if a wire got pinched to/from the module.

No start

there should be a hot lead going into the distributor, it connects under the cap check for power there when you turn the key on if not try to trace the wire to the starter and the ignition, hope that's the problem.
