The only I can think of would be a defective module

Have the Ignition Control Module and the coil tested at an auto parts store to see which is bad.

Haven't found I'm. Coil is new

Things to check...first I don't see a Ignition Control Module listed for this vehicle. So what I suggest is take the distributor cap off and see if you can turn the rotor while it is in place on the distributor shaft. If you can turn the rotor, shaft, then the pin going threw the distributor gear & shaft is sheared. Just a matter of pulling the distributor and replacing the pin, and re-setting the distributor. Another thing to do is make sure the mounting holes for the coil are clean from any coating at the mounting surfaces. The coil needs to be grounded at the mounting surfaces to the intake. If all checks out from above mentioned, then I would suspect the crankshaft sensor. That just would need replacing.
