Default '93 MPV V6: Not Starting (view details)

So I was driving down the Interstate and all of a sudden the vehicle stalled out (no acceleration). After pulling off to the side of the road I went to start the vehicle and it would not start.

After a tow home and a few days of working on the beast here is what has been done:

- Replaced Fuel Filter
- Replaced Fuel Pump
- Checked Air System (replaced Air Filter)
- Checked for Spark and got one.

When started the engine turns over, however it is not firing up.

Today my father and I went ahead and took out one of the old Spark Plugs and saw that the engine is flooded and will wait till tomorrow to go ahead and see if it starts up after it has had tons of time to evaporate out.

***So, I am to the point where I do not know what it could be. The van needs a tune up... but any ideas?***

Spark does not mean enough spark or spark at the right time. I would check the cap/rotor and while i had it off check the timing to be sure when the crank pointer is at TDC the rotor is pointing at #1 on the cap as the timing belt could have jumped.
