ELECTRA WON'T START

1986 Buick Other

I am trying to get to the bottom of a problem. I have a 1986 electra with a 3.8, and it just quit like you shut off the engine. I checked the computer and have a good code. Never saw a check engine light. Replaced alternator with new. Went to junk yard and changed mass air flow sensor, coil packs and ignition module. Also checked for rocker arm movement in case it broke a timing chain. Installed a new crankcase sensor, new plugs new idle position selinoid, and it still won't start. I checked for spark, and it is getting spark. The original coil and module set has a white/yellow spark. The junk yard set is a nice blue. I have 38 pounds fuel pressure, and I am getting wet plugs. Do you think jumped time? Or maybe invest in NEW coil/module and plug wires. HELP the car only has 87,000 miles and I know it has more in it. Thanks.
