Greetings! Have a trained technician, like the ones here at YourMechanic, come out and take a look for you. The mechanic will be able to turn the engine over to determine why the car is not starting and confirm proper mechanical timing. This has to be confirmed first to prevent internal damage. Once the mechanic ensures proper mechanical timing, the ignition system can be inspected for a fault. The distributor timing, drive gear for the distributor, and engine position sensors(camshaft and crankshaft) are all important for ignition timing. It is not uncommon for the distributor to fail in a way that disrupts timing.
