Default 98 civic won't start

I'll try to make this as short as possible.
coming home from work E light came on but few minutes from home. Next morning before work car won't start. Sounds strong just wouldn't start, did turn over and fire once but quickly sputtered out and died. Did add about one gallon of gas no changes. found alternative way to work. Next day after advice and help from neighbor, heard fuel pump kick on and main relay click with fuel pump on and off. Opened fuel line after fuel filter and got good spraying of fuel when trying to start. No spark with screwdriver and sparkplug boot, yea you would think. replaced distributor cap, rotor, ignition coil, sparkplug wires, and sparkplugs (they were due anyways). Still no start but seemed closer once. Also during all this dumped fuel into throttle body but would not start (this was after renewing spark with parts minus the wires and new plugs) Car ran fine on the way home the night before. Car is old and not well kept by previous owners, owned car about one year. Please Help!
