Sorry for the delay, I was out of town and just got back.
If the CEL stays on, you need to retrieve the trouble code to find out what is wrong. Quite often a faulty ECM would cause no sparks conditions. With the CEL staying on all the time, I would suspect the ECU to be faulty, quite common for your model
Before checking the ECU, ensure the groun d connections at the thermostat housing is correctly and securely connected.
Of a tooth distributor would not stop ignition sparks.
