Ok my mazda mx3 has been running for a long time, and it has ran great, allways started at first turn of key...
The other day i moved it up my drive way. had it sitting running for about 10 minutes then it just died. at first i suspected out of gas, it was really low so i got a gas can and put 6 gallons in it. i go to start it, it turns over and over but dont start, we check spark and it has no spark. Now i allready tested my ingnition coil, the primary was in the limits for ohms, the second dary was not, supposed to be 11-18 it was 8000, now i know i need to replace that i was going to do cap and rotor at same time, but i just dont feel that is all of it, i turn it over and my spark plugs are wet, but when i checked fuel presure i dont think the pump primed it self at all, i basicly need to know how the ingnition on one of those works, the distributor has voltage, but i need to know about all the relays for it, and further test i can do before going and droping 81 bucks, cause if i need a whole new distributor, it would be a waste of money and time to get a coil.
Is there something simple electrical wise im over looking?
and yes it turns over just dont fire, and the rator turns to so i dont got a broken timing belt, i am due to replace it though, i want to know if this could be some simple electrical fuck up ty.

Try checking the ECU for error codes. If something like the crankshaft position sensor died, the ECU would disable the fuel pump and ignition system as a fail-safe since it has no reference to deliver fuel or spark.
