Hi gator0341,

Are your sure you are getting sparks?
If sparks are available from the coil and not getting to the sparks, rotor, distributor cap and spark plug wires are the only components that would be possible causes.

Did you check if the rotor is turning while cranking?

Yes I am getting power to and from my coil which is built in to the distributer, but still nothing comming through my cap and to my wires, I have tried all new components but no luck, now I have a guy telling me to replace my ECU computer because I may not be getting the correct power from my computer to run the rest of the distributer. Any other Ideas?

Did you test if spark is coming out from the coil high tension side? Is the spark strong, bright blue or dull orange? Is the distributor new or reman?

Let me repeat this, if you have sparks from the ignition coil, and it is not getting to the spark plugs, check the distributor rotor and cap. Something must be wrong between them.

No sparks condition are not due to a faulty PCM. The distributor itself is responsible for sparking.
