    I'm with him... its pretty common for the ignitor/coil to go bad. You can pick pick thoes up and install them w/o replacing the whole dizzy.

    First I would check to see if there is spark at all of the plug wires. To test, pull a plug wire out and ground it on something while the car is running. You should see a spark arcing.

    Another thing to check would be the fuel pressure and see whether or not the injectors are opening.

    have a close look at the wiring, make sure there are no corrosion or lose connections in and around the dizzy as well.
