Got spark and fuel? Check crank and cam sensors. CHECK don't change unless bad. Make sure the sensors have power and pass power as the engine rotates.

Ok. Generic answer. Your car has a distributor with an electronic pickup inside. Make sure it is receiving power. Make sure the Hall effect transistor or stator inside the distributor is properly gapped. Check all wiring for proper connections.
