Replaced plugs and wires, cap and rotor for a tune up. Engine seemed like it was missing and stalling out after new parts were installed. Checked gap, set to 0.045 as per emissions label, still missing and stalling out. Replaced coil pack. That didn't do anything either. Last thing I did was change the ignition control module under the distributer, now it wont fire at all. Any ideas?

Have the new ignition module tested at any autoparts store for free.
Make SURE you put the dielectric grease on the metal part of the module. The module grounds to the dist. Base so if screws are stripped or contact is not good, ign module will not operate.

You should also change the pick-up coil while you are at it. You will need to remove the dist. And dist. Shaft to do this.
