Default 1997 MPV wont start..

After driving only 5 minutes, my 1997 MPV stalled and wouldn't restart. Got it home (pushed it), checked plugs (sparks fine), checked distributor cap (no cracks), and replaced fuel pump. Still won't start. Turns over but won't 'catch'. Any other ideas on what might be going on?

I had same thing happen to mine, called up a friend, said it could of jumped time.
1st, check your plug wires, plug placement is 1,2,3,4,5,6 . Pull distributor cap off, rotate bolt to move timing gear to TD, then check if rotor button facing to #1 , if not, losing bolt holding distributor, pull out gently, just enough to rotate button to #1 position. tighten bolt and replace cap. Took me couple hours to hit the right compression setting, but finally got it. Now just need to find out why it has a small rough idle and lack of power.
