If the timing belt is intact and the engine sounds normal when you crank it, it's possible that the ignition coil or the Ignition control module has failed and they're both housed in the distributor. These parts are not replaceable separately from the distributor. If you have power and ground at the distributor and it doesn't create sparks when it's turning, I'd suspect the distributor. Testing is important in diagnosis but I can't really explain the process in this venue. If you want to read diagnostic procedures, there are online resources available.
