check with a test light on coil possitive side and see if power is going to coil and if so check the negative side as you crank motor over if so then it sounds like the pick ups inside the distrtibutor would be bad.

have done all that and had my mechanic check the omhs on the distributor and the coil im not getting fire out of coil thats why im wondering if its the ecu
