I had the same problem with a 1991 probe. Turned out to be the distributor shaft bearing was worn and no spark was coming out because the gap inside the distributor was too large. Disconnect 1 plug wire and Check for spark at the wire when turning over the engine. I usually just put a screwdriver in the end of the plugwire and lay it near something under the hood that is grounded. Then watch for spark when the engine is turned over.
