What are you missing spark or fuel?

Try below

Get a carb cleaner and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light.

Fuel pump and Injector/s checks out-start checking the ignition system-power to coil, coil/s itself, distributor pick-up, control module, Cam and Crankshaft sensors.

I am not missing feul or spark. The spark on the other hand is not a snapping blue color but more like an orangish-yellow. There is no doubt about getting fuel. I have replaced the control module, ignition pick-up module, and coil. I have been told that this car has no crank sensor. Could it be a weak distributor? I have one on order from a parts store.

Orange-yellowish color means the ignition system is weak could be the coil.

Its not the coil. I have replaced the coil with a new one. Ther was one more part in the distributor that I did not replace until today. Its not the ignition pick up but some other kind of pick up. I got it on the distributor but a wire broke that plugs into the controle module. I guess that I will have to go to a junkyard and take it off of another 2.5l engine. If this new pick up dont work I dont know what else to do!
