remove the distributer cap,does the rotor turn when you turn the engine?

ok,,and you have all electrical plugs connected?
you see that it for sure doesnt have a spark..corect?
if this is the case,,you have one of two things going on
a bad crank sensor..or..
a bad distributer
Interruption of the primary current flowing in the primary side of the ignition coil generates high voltage in the secondary side of the ignition coil. The high voltage thus generated is directed by the distributor to the applicable spark plug. The engine firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 cylinders. On application of high voltage, the spark plug generates a spark to ignite the compressed air fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. The ignition coil, ignition power transistor and camshaft position sensor are built in the distributor. The powertrain control module (PCM) controls the ignition timing by turning on and off the ignition power transistor to regulate the primary current of the ignition coil. The camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor generate pulses that are input to the PCM. The PCM determines crankshaft position from these sensors. The PCM calculates injector sequence and ignition timing from crankshaft position. Basic ignition timing is not adjustable.

the crank sensor tells the distributer the engine is turning so it will activate the coils
if you have power at the coils i would think the asd is fine
let me know how it gos
