Default Spark plugs won't spark. Please help!

I have a 1995 Maxda 626, V6 that won't start. My car's starter motor is fine, i took the sparkplugs out the other day, and didn't see a spark. this is on all of them. I smelt gas on it, so i know it's getting fuel (right?). The motor isn't flooded, it's been sitting for 3 days, so even if it was, it should be good by now, or so i think. So when i took out the spark plugs, i saw no spark, but the starter motor is just fine. So, is it the ignition coil? Distributor maybe? I don't know, and i don't want to start throwing new parts into it and esspecially don't want to go to a shop, labor on this stuff is outragous. Please, any ideas would be great.

Check to see if its your wires...from the distributor side... If you are still not getting a spark make sure that your distributor is receiveing power... If you arent gettign power from the distributor but power is going to it then id say that either you need to change the cap and the rotor or the whole thing....

DVOM would work great.
Black w/ white stripe wire is power in so should have battery voltage when key is on.
The solid black wire and Black w/ red stripe are both ground wires so should have good continuity to engine ground with connector disconnected.
Distributors on the KL V6 engine are super notorious for failing and causing a stalling or no start condition with loss of ignition spark.
