These are hard to pin point. ecu and crank sensor can cause this. i imagine you have thoroughly checked fuses and battery connections. does the check engine light come on when you turn on the key? is there power at the ignition coil?

If the computer don't get the Ne and G signals it will not give an Igt signal to the ignitor telling it to fire the coil, further NO Igf signal to the computer tell it that combustion has occured-Therefore end of result no secondary surge to the plugs.

Check the pick up coils resistances-

If its getting battery voltage to the coil -Check the coil's primary and secondary resistances and the distributor pick-up coil if okay -You're looking at the Ignitor.

My car ran great and then all of a sudden cranks great but does not turn over. I checked for spark, no spark. I have replaced multiple things spark plug boots wires, distributor cap rotor and all and still no start checked all fuses all are fine.

The parts you listed will not suddenly cause loss of spark to all cylinders. The better suspects are the ignition control module and the pick-up assembly in the distributor.

I have replaced the ignition control module and I am assuming it is the brain or the crank position sensor, but I am not sure.

Your engine does not use a crankshaft position sensor; at least I do not see any reference to one. That just leaves the pick-up assembly in the distributor. Engine computers do not really cause many crank/no-starts. If you have access to a scanner, you can watch the live data display to see if the computer is getting signal pulses from the distributor.

Would replacing the engine relay fix the no spark to the spark plugs?

Have you checked for 12v at coil terminal plug with ignition on? Did you remove distributor cap and crank over to see if distributor is turning? If not the timing belt is broke.

Also You should have a little grey box under the hood on the driver's side fender. If you open it up and look under the cap, it'll give pin names. The two you want to short (connect) together are TE1 and E1. Connect (bridge) those, turn engine to ON (but do not start it!) And it will blink codes. Flashes followed by pauses. They re 2 digit codes.

My car recently I had jumped with a piece of metal my EFI fuse and had been driving it about 180 miles and all of a sudden it just had no power and burnt out a couple fuses I replaced all the bad fuses and all my fuses are working now but my car will still not start and is not getting a spark for some reason I replaced the cap and rotor brand new less then 300 miles on them was wondering if you knew where I should look to figure out why its not getting a spark if theres maybe a wiring diagram I could look at.

Check the ignition fuse/look for power at the coil/test the resistances of the distributor pick-up coil/ignitor-
