No spark

No spark
I bought a 99 Chrysler Cirrus, 2.5 L 6cyl. The car was running until the day I puchased it. It turns over but will not start. I replaced the crank positioning sensor and it did not change. I noticed that the fuel pump was not running when the key was turned on. I had it towed to my local garage and they replaced the fuel pump because I dont have a lift. Now the fuel pump is working properly and can hear when key is turned but the car still will not start. The garage is now saying I need a distributor because there is no spark. Should I replace? I feel like the car didn't lose the fuel pump and distributor at the same time. What am I missing? Could the crankshaft positioning sensor I replaced be junk, maybe its the cam sensor. Btw, there are no codes. Help!

RE: No spark
I'm not all that familiar with this particular engine but with a 18 year old vehicle there's lots of possibilities, and probably lots of money that could be spent in the process. The best thing to do is verify their diagnosis before spending more.

When it cranks over, does it sound normal? Does the distributor turn as it cranks? Does it have a cam belt? (that's possibly way over due for replacement?

Again, I'm not up on that particular engine but I have seen many where the cam belt broke and that's the root cause of a no spark situation.

Answer those questions and we can chat more.

Try to check the power coming into the coil also.
