Distributor Cap

A spark problem could be corrosion inside the distributor cap. These contact points need to be clean, as well as the metal on the rotor. If these check out fine and you've already replaced the ignition wires and spark plugs, check that you're getting power to the distributor when the key is in the On position. In some cases, the coil or ignition module (or points) might be toast.
