    sounds like a timing belt broken. interference motor which means you may have bent valves which requires major surgey into the motor.

    Same thing started happening to my Van Today. Fuel, air and sparks are being delivered to the cylinders, the distributor is turning when the engine is cranked but the van still does not start? Did you guys find out what the problem was?

    possible the distributor pickup sending unit, or no spark the coil.
