When there is no spark, there is a problem with ignition system. Inside the distributor there is an ignator or ICM ignition control module and an ignition coil. But before you check them, confirm you have no spark by using a tester then hooking it up to a good metal ground and the other end to spark plug wire number one, the one next to the timing belt. Crank engine and if no spark comes out, then you may want to replace cap and rotor, as cap may be shorted out, then try to crank engine and it should run. Also, inspect ignition wires for any damage to them. Some people would replace the whole distributor, when in fact, they could.have easily replace one component within the distributor and save money in the process, but its your choice if you want to replace the whole distributor. Also, if you dont know how to troubleshoot ignition systems, then I guess replace whole distributor.

An easy check, would be to clean the brushes on the distributor pack. Also possible it just needs a new distributor pack. Or even new spark plug wires. Could possibly get both in one package
