Lets check the fuel pressure with a gauge-no eyeball or thumb method. We need to rule out the fuel system.

Further you might want to pull out the IACV and clean it and test the TPS voltages

Retest the coil, ICM and distributor pick-up. Check for power at coil when key is in On position and cranking- No power do this get a jumper wire between coil positive terminal and battery positive. Then attempt to start, did it start. If so you need to check the ignition switch.

The IACV is the idle air control valve, The TPS is the throttle position sensor. You check voltages on the TPS. Closed and WOT position. The IACV you have to take it out and clean it.

The coolant temperature sensor is what I changed if located on the water pump on 1994 Chevy Caprice. And the thermostat was changed two months ago along with the water pump.
