Went to start the car one morning and went to fire up, let go of ignition to early and stalled, now it wont fire up just keep's turnig over. Have checked all fuses and relay's, has spark from coil to dizzy but does not continue through the leads, checked dizzy to see if the rotar button was still turning and everything is fine, also checked computer and just say's everything is normal. Anyone that could help i would greatly appreciate. Thanks

Is the security light in the mode switch flashing while it's trying to start?

Replace your ignition module. Silver box that sits on the passenger side guard.

if you have spark from coil to dizzy then it must be your dizzy cap or rotor or leads stopping the spark from getting to the plugs.
If the ignition module or coil was stuffed you would get no spark from coil to dizzy
