why diid you change all that stuff just because it would not start , always ck to see if you got spark and fuel and air , those are the only 3 things to make a gas engine to run , all that other stuff is add ons ,if the car cranks over make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rails and spark at the plugs, the crank sensor is on the left just about the crankshaft pully somehwhere ,

I change all that stuff because i wasnt getting enough spark it an orange spark that i was getting instead of a blue one so that why i bought new distributor for it done tried starting fluid didn't crank new plugs and now I think its the crankshaft position sensor gone bad its an electrical problem i have but thank you for your advice
