sorry for the late reply and thanks for the help. ended up changing the timing belt and tensioner and pulley, even though everything looked new, it still somehow jumped timing, alot. runs like a champ now. Thank you.

How are you checking for spark? This is a good time to purchase a spark plug tester, break out that old induction timing light, or just rent a timing light from the parts store. Hook it up via the directions, and see if it flashes. If no flash, no spark. Start with the coil, then if not the coil, replace the crank sensor. I'd bet the coil fixes it though.
