My car recently caught on fire under the hood after the spark plugs and wiring was changed. The distributor, distributor cap, harnest, fuse box, and wiring were ruined. I bought all the parts and the car still wont start. It sounds like it but it wont. Any ideas on what may be the problem?

Check to see if you are getting spark and fuel to the engine.

Was the wiring damaged to the crank and cam sensor? Were either sensors damaged by the fire?

I can have my dad check. We had a mobile mechanic come out and look. He says that I may need a new computer box.
