    Did you check the timing? What was the problem tht caused you to replace everything? Double check spark plug wire routing. Correct gap on plugs? Need more info.

    My son got this car from his father. He said he replaced the distributor when it quit running one day and replaced these other parts. I also know it has been sitting for four years covered up. We are trying to test the crank sensor now and the distributor just in case

    Yes timing belt is fine, camshaft and distributor are fine, just no power. We are thinking its the computer, pcm because it also won't work with the code reader and we replaced the crankshaft sensor a couple of times and that isn't it either

    Well we can try another one I guess if the computer isn't the problem but that is what everyone that has looked at it thinks it is
