CAR CRANKING BUT NOT STARTING

1994 Toyota Corolla

Electrical problem
1994 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

1994 Toyota Corolla LE with 130K miles stopped suddenly on the road. Mechanic said he found electricity was going into distributor but not out of it.

To save money I replaced the new distributor myself (which actually contains a new coil as well in these models). However I forgot to set the cylinder one to " 0" position before replacing the distributor.

Now, car is still cranking but not turning over. And I still am not getting a spark at the sparkplug wire.

Question is: Will not setting the Cylinder 1 to " 0" cause no spark at the sparkplug wire? Or is there something else that is still wrong?

I wanted to find out what might be still wrong before removing the distributor and resetting Cyl. 1.

thanks in advance!

Following this thread. My problem with my '94 Corolla is nearly identical except my engine light is not coming on at all. What I know for sure is my distributor is good and my ECI relay and fuse are good. I have fuel, I have no spark, there is 12v to the distributor. Where is the PCM relay? Do I now know I need a computer?
