These pages may help you to isolate your no spark, could be a bad PIP

Does the fuel pump run when you turn the key? Have you checked the fuses both under the dash and under the hood? If that all checks out then check for voltage at the coil, should be 12v IIRC on the 'hot' side of the coil (the side the DOESN'T have the condenser/noise filter hooked to it).

ok i did all tests, and did them 2 times to be sure, as per the test it point to the PIP sensor. Where is a good place to buy one and can you get it out of the distributor? or replace whole distributor?

Replace the whole distributor is easiest
I had terrible luck with the re-manufactured units, so...I went to CarQuest and bought a brand new unit, marked on the box "heat tested" I think it cost me 120.-...
