Check for fuel, spark, and then compression. Fuel problems can be pump, pump relay, fuse, filter, line, etc. Spark problems can be distributor module, distributor, coil packs, power to distributor or coil packs, plug wires. Compression problems would be piston rings, piston walls, piston rods.

Sounds like you replaced alot of parts for nothing.
The pickup coil in the distributor "fires" the module which grounds the coil and the injectors.
Those components would need to be tested. The coil fires the plugs when the ground is removed by the module or the key switch.

Cranks ok no start

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since it is cranking, we need to look at what it takes to start which is: fuel, air, and fire. You need to make sure fuel is getting to the engine. Check your fuel pump and make sure it is kicking on. You should be able to hear a humming sound for a second or two when you first turn your key. If not, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, and reset, if equipped. If you still don't hear it, change it. Check your fuel filter for a clog, Check your gas lines and make sure they are not damaged and shut. Lastly, check your fuel injectors. If the pump is working and all the other fuel parts are working, start checking your ignition system. Check to make sure the timing belt/chain is not broken. Check to see if the plugs are sparking. Check your spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor, dist.cap, coil pack. If you are still not getting a spark, check your cam sensor and crank sensor. It may be a problem in the computer but check this last. Any of these parts can cause a car to not start. I know it is a lot. That is why it is important to try get a code off your computer. You can have it scanned for codes. This could lead you on the right path. If you can't, you will need to check what you can. Check for fuel pressure and check for spark. If the fuel pressure checks out to be normal, it is not a fuel issue. If you check and you have a spark to the plugs, it rules out the distributor, dist.cap, coils, and plugs.

Car won't start.

hi there, first off you need to make sure the voltage is good, then make sure your spark plugs are firing properly(all 4) then take off the fuel line coming out of the fuel rail to the tank(not the one coming into fuel rail from fuel pump) and swing the engine and make sure the fuel is flowing. Once you can verify that everything in the above is operational then we can continue with the diagnosis of the car.

Worst case scenario - fuel filter, spark plugs and /or leads, distributor cap, coil pack or fuel pump may need changing.
