I believe this has electronic ignition, so your possibilities would be the ignition coil, stator inside the distributor or ignition module. Also be sure that you have battery voltage to the plus side of the ignition coil from the ignition switch. If by chance this was converted to a point ignition, then check for closed up points or a bad condenser too.
You will use a test light or volt meter. As for the other components, some soec u albert equipment is necessary and you may need some outside help with that.
Thanks , and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link for future reference.
