Default D16Z6 no spark :(

Hey all. I recently picked up a 93 Del Sol Si. Love the car but now it wont start. I've been scouring the internet and have been coming up short trying to get the car back up and running so any help would be very much appreciated!!

To start off, the car was running great up until this point and i've been quite happy with my purchase. As part of routine maintenance I've replaced the distributor cap & rotor, spark plug wires, spark plugs, and timing/accessory belts.

The issue began randomly one day while I was driving home from work. I was cruising down the road around 45/50 mph when the engine cut off. I pulled over, called AAA and had it towed home. That night i was tinkering and realized i wasn't getting any spark.

So i starting poking around the distributer and found I was getting power and resistance everywhere I'm supposed to according to my Haynes manual. For shits and giggles i check the ignition switch which has power both in and out. I read online it could be my ECU so i grabbed an unmodified used one from a running car and still nothing (it was a P28 btw). I then, just to see, went out a bought a new distributer and threw it in and still nothing.

On a side note my fuel is working, we can smell it when cranking.

Also, while removing the distributor I broke the VTEC oil sensor but its to my understanding that this would not prevent the car from running if it fails..?

Any help would be very much appreciated! I'm stumped and could use some guidance!

How did you determine you have spark?

Dont fuck around and just answer my questions honestly if you want to fix your car without paying anyone.

Do you have 12 volts at the big black/yellow wire at the distributor plug harness side?

I do not hear it prime but I def can smell fuel when i crank the engine with the spark plug out (to check for spark)

I read check the main relay but i also read elsewhere, while researching this, that I wouldn't have fuel if the relay was bad.

CEL does stay on but i do not have a scan tool to check the codes its throwing.

on your passensger side behind the kick panel by the ecu look for the little blue connector thats not connected to anything jump it with a paper clip or wire and turn your ignition to on and record the blinks. it will tell you what the engine light is on for.
if your not getting spark its gotta be something distributor related. ignitor, rotor and cap wires or bad spark plugs.

Take the fuel line off the fuel rail and put it in a bottle, and prime it.

If you are not getting any fuel, check the 15a cpu fuse.

Im in Brandon but flying out to Vegas for a week today so I'll have to get back to this when I get home. I did look for the jumper connection but couldnt locate it. There was a green rectangle but not a small blue one. I looked all over in that area and followed the wiring where i could but nothing. Ill post a picture in a few but there isnt one there :-/

I'll be checking the fuel when I return
