If car sat for 4 years without a fuel stabilizer in tank, you most likely have a significant varnish build up.
Get a noid light and make sure injectors are firing, spark should be blue snapping spark, anything else is considered no spark.
There is a special tool set to check fuel pressure at rail. You remove the cold start valve at the rail and screw in adapter, then hook up to mechanical gauge.
Also remove plugs and check compression.
If weak spark then most likely and ignitor is bad, on this engine (4AFE), it is actually cheaper to buy a remanufactures dist, rather than the ignitor (ign. Module) itself.
You can also get a used dist. From a junkyard. Look for one from a 90-92 Toyota Corolla or Geo Prizm.
If you find a car listed above, remove and buy the two fuse/relay boxes near the left front strut. They contain fuses, but also very expensive relays that you may need.
