Was driving and car just had no accelleration

Was driving and car just had no accelleration. Had it towed home. Check for spark with none firing. Then went into distributor to do a coil icm test and got as far as rotor. Cannot access the screw to remove rotor. Turned driver wheel far left and manually cranked the engine with 17mm a couple turns and rotor has not moved its postion. I am thinking its timing. But im not sure if I should have the wheel off or car jacked for the manual cranking to work. I have car in nuteral also. Any suggestions? Any help will greatly be appreciated. I am partially disabled and have no income so I will try my hardest to do as much as I can. Thanks and God Bless.

Do you

If the rotor is not turning when the engine has been cranked, it means the timing belt has given way.
