Probably the ignition module. They are known for going out. I keep a spare in the glove compartment. If you have a dwell meter you can check to see if the coil is being told to fire. Sometimes you can tell by putting a test light between the negative coil terminal and the positive battery post. If it flashes while cranking the coil is getting a signal. If it doesn't flash you don't know anything, but at least you tried something new.

On a 94 the module is on the inside of the driver's fender near the hood hinge, not on the distributor.
