How did you come to the determination that your rotor was not spinning?

This happened to me today. Check to see if the distributor igniter and coil are in working order. Each are a little over $100 to fix and can be done yourself.

hmm i pulled off the distributer cap and cranked the motor to see if the rotor spun. not sure if thats right. But is it necessary to have teh distributer cap and spark plugs all put in properly for the rotor to spin?

When i tried to turn on the engine, it would make the cranking sound (cranks 3-4 times, followed by the winding sound), but the motor will not run, its like theres no power getting to the motor for it to start?

In addition, i dont think im gettin any spark from the spark plug wires, assuming i did the spark check properly. i put a screwdriver in the spark plug wire and then tip the screwdriver to a metal grounder, and tried to start the engine. nothing. more imput please thanks everyone.

Like I said earlier, check your distributer coil and igniter. Get a multimeter or anything that checks current and test the connections.

I am with this guy. I had this problem couple of months ago. My distributor rotor was not turning because my ignition coil crapped out. Check your ignition coil and igniter.

is the igniter and coil located behind the black housing next to the rotor. the problem is, im trying to spin my distributor rotor so i can get to the screw to remove the rotor, and get access to the coil and igniter. theres that black housing thats keeping me from gettin there. i cant get the rotor to spin at all so the screw is in a location where i cannot get too.

k here is the problem.. im not getting any spark threw the spark plugs. must be the igniter or the coil. so i opened up the distributor cap, but cant take off the rotor to get access to the coil and igniter. the screw on the shaft to remove the rotor is in a position where i cannot unscrew it. But then i cant find a wayy to spin the rotor.! helpppppppppp.

i opened up the valve cover and thet iming belt seems fine. try to crank the motor but only hear that chukka chukka chukka noise, wont turn over, rotor wont spin. rolled the car in gear, rotor still wont spin. what could it be? any input would be helpful.

See Ignition troubleshooting to check the ignitor/coil

Have you pulled the distributer off to see if you can manually turn the distributer/rotor?
