To "fire", your car needs air, fuel, and a spark to ignite each cylinder. You need to determine which piece it is missing and then maybe we can help you get it going again.

Yes it could be the pick up coil, under the distributor cap, 2 wires run to it, gently pull on each one, the wires usually break. Also by the sounds of it, check the rotor by taking it off and look on the underneath side of it in the center, the rotor usually will burn threw to ground, you will see a burnt spot.
