I am not sure what is wrong but I drove my truck home one night and the next morning I wake up to start it and it wont start and makes a different noise then it usually does, kinda like its going to fast and my tac gauge moves if I give it gas the tac will shoot up to 4 or 5 and then drops back down I can also hear a weird ticking in the engine when I stop trying to start it. I did a spark test and there was no spark so I did a whole tune up (it needed it anyways) and got a new ignition coil but this did nothing the same things are happening and it still wont start. I was told it could be my distributor or my timing belt but im not sure and I dont know what else it could be any help would be much appreciated

Sounds like the timing belt may have failed. Have it checked to confirm

when did you have it changed last?
