could be your starter, your fuel pump could be bad, check your battery, maybe you need new injectors... could be a number of things.

You say that you have ( no ) spark.
Then start at the coil and work to the plugs.

Be sure to check your grounds.

If you have no spark from the coil, and you have replaced the ignition module, the most likely problem is the stator (coil pickup) inside the distributor. It could also be the coil itself or the wiring to the coil. Give everything a good look and if everything looks ok, try subbing the coil. If that checks good, then replace the stator.

Ooops. Didn't notice that it was a '93. As mentioned, check for good grounds. Loss of ground to the computor will cause no spark. Also check ignition switch to be sure it is making good contact.
