    that sucks

    Try the spark first. see how strong it is. pull a wire out of the distributor and let the electricity ark to the wire. if the spark is real dull it is the coil. what did it do when you shut it off does anyone have acess to the car who could have swapped the wires around as a joke mayby. if not one of these things idk b/c if you have spark, fuel, and ignition timing you should have fire. also check the plugs for fouling.

    maby, if not try the fuel filter it may be clogged so you can hear it prime but no fuel to the injectors. it is probably something minor.

    Sounds like your coil it bad, pull your dist. cap off and look at the coil plug, it's probably very corroded and brittle.
