Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2002 town and country  turns over , but won't start. I took one spark plug out, set it on
the engine to see if there was a spark, went to try to start and it did. Put the spark plug
back in and it wouldn't start.

take the gas cap off and have someone listen at the filler while you turn the key to the on position and see if the fuel pump runs, even if only momentarily.

The fuel pump is running. I changed the distributor and the problem persists, the only time I can get it to run is when I take a plug out and ground it to the body, then it starts no problem. Leads me to believe it could be some kind of grounding issue, but I am not sure.
