Do not jump to conclusions and start at the distributer module -- until you have determined and TESTED other - simpler and cheaper - items for failure.
First, determine if it is getting fuel. Take off the air filter assembly and crank the engine. Look to see if there is fuel spraying from the injectors. This is the simplest way to determine if you are getting fuel. If you are observe how it is spraying -- Is it dripping? Is it just dumping into the intake?
Second, check to see if you are getting spark. There are a number of ways to do this, but I just unplug a plug wire and plug in an old spark plug, ground the electrode to the head or a good ground and crank the engine. Is it a strong spark? Do this and let us know what you find.
Also, You do not have a carburator - you have a throttle body. Spraying carb. Cleaner into a throttle body WILL damage it. Use a throttle body cleaner.
