Default 1999 Acura Integra with NO SPARK!?

My Acura Integra was running fine when it stalled out once or twice. I thought that maybe it wasn't a big deal so I kept driving it. A week or so later it would stall out every time I drove it. The car ended up not starting at all. I did my research and found that a Main Relay was a common problem when cars get warmed up. So I changed it and it worked just fine for the rest of the day. I drove to work which is a 20 minute drive and it worked fine. That night as I was leaving work the car started right up, but stalled out after being on for two minutes. The car wouldn't start back up, but after five minutes it started up and drove fifteen minutes home. After getting it back to my house my dad tried putting thermal compound on the igniter because he read that it could cause it to stall. When he was doing this he noticed a very very small spark on the distributor. He had forgotten to disconnect the battery. The car now will not start at all. We thought maybe that spark was the ignition coil blowing or the distributor breaking so we replaced the entire distributor and it still won't start. There is no spark when we pull a spark plug out and touch it to the engine. The car turns over but won't start at all. There is gas on the plugs also. What could this possibly be? I really don't want to take it into a shop due to having no money for it or the tow. Any help?!?!

usually distributors dont go bad unless you have a check engine light code .. obd2 system ( on board diagnostics ) found on 96 and up hondas and acuras are some of the greatest technology.. did you guys replace with a loaded distributor or unloaded? mostly the ignitor coil and ignition module is the culprit.. the little module connected to the the coil by speaker look-a-like wires (female) it should have 3 male connects on the top and one on the side.. with 2 screws holding it down.. those are the main faults and should be replaced together as one fails and causes the other to fail... causing you problem..
