The quick answer is whether you have spark or not. Disconnect the coil wire that goes into the distributor cap. Hold the wire slightly above something metal and you should see a spark jump from the end of the wire terminal. (have someone crank the motor for you if you don't have a remote starter switch) If you have spark then it could be the ignition module or pick up coil in the distributor. Good luck.
