Car is cranking but no start?

I recently gapped and changed spark plugs on my 1998 Acura Integra GS B18B1 154700 miles/249000 km and then the worst has happened. The car is cranking but won't start.
-I made sure all the wires were in the right cylinder and I didn't touch the distributor at all.
-I made sure the spark plugs were snug to the cylinder.
-I have enough fuel.
-I think there's no spark going to my spark plugs.
-I then changed the ignition module control, cap/rotor and its still cranking but no start? It can't be the battery... what gives? :/

Check fuel pressure?
Maybe your fuel filter is clogged?
More likely the fuel pump because it seems like you are not getting any fuel pressure at all.

It ran before with the old plugs, now wont run with new plugs.....pull a plug and check for spark. Also check that they are the correct plugs in there and make sure that you gapped them properly. A overly large gap can prevent starting.

If all that has chanced is the plugs then its rather easy to assume that the new plugs are in fact the issue. Put old ones back in and see if it runs.

Make sure all the little push connectors are correctly on the igniter, it's possible to get it in the boot but have the male connector miss the blade. That could be enough to do it.

Also seen guys snap the distributor caps coil contact off when installing the cap.

Pull the wires, one at a time, stick a spark plug into 1 wire at a time, ground the plug on a valve cover nut, have someone crank it over while you watch for spark.

it can also be your Crank Position Sensor - I had my wires come loose and got cut off completely by the alternator belt. I connected all the wires again and it fired right up.

Good luck on the fix.
once you go boost you never go back!!
