Answers :

There is a "sensor" on the back of the engine. I "think" it's called the "rear crankshaft" sensor. It is small, has two wires, is "somewhat" difficult to change. There is also one inside the distributor and one in the front of the engine. These go bad, a diagnostic computer will identify the bad one. They must have a "specific OHM" resistance to function properly. hope this helps. (202.5K on mine! great car!)
I don't have enough info to give you a specific answer so I've listed a bunch of possible problem that could cause your engine to roll over but not start.
\015\012 Check the battery and connections, a weak battery or bad connections can cause a weak spark and stop the engine from firing.
\015\012 Fuel pump or fuel filter, low gas pressure can cause to lean of a air/fuel mixture for the engine to start.
\015\012 Bad gas, old gas or water in the gas can stop the engine from firing.
\015\012 Bad or fouled spark plugs, could be caused by bad gas.
\015\012 Ignition wiring problems, can cause weak or unreliable spark.
\015\012 Bad, poorly connected or misconnected spark plug wires. Even 2 wire out of order can stop the engine from firing.
\015\012 Oily spark plug wires, can cause the spark to fire at the wrong cylinder or misfire.
\015\012 Worn, damaged or wet ignition components.
