a bad starter is not going to cause a no spark condition.

you can pretty much guarantee a crank no-start condition on these cars is from a bad cam sensor

just make SURE you use an OEM sensor.

did the car stall while driving? do you have a volt meter on hand to check for power at the ignition coils with key to ON?
