Remove distributor cap and see if rotor turns when u start it, to see if it's mechanical or electrical issue

It has the the ignition coil on it I am guessing my real question would be if the timing jumping would it still fire

This electronic ignitions make it hard to determine if it has jumped without taking it apart

If it jumped, u would still get spark, just not at the right time. Soark would be normal just not when piston is at TDC
