96 Jeep cherokee sport

No spark? Changed distributor,ignition coil. New plugs, cap and rotor. Still wont start. Just turns over. Cut off while driving and wont start. Maybe the cam sensor or timing off?

Are there any MIL codes? That model year is OBD-II, so you should be able to retrieve any codes that may give a better hint what direction to go. Right now, you're just throwing parts at it, which gets expensive fast and rarely finds the issue quickly.
A no spark condition can be caused by a lot of issues, some have nothing to do with sensors under the hood. A security system problem will also kill the spark and fuel pump.

unplug coil, jump wires/terminals with a test light, crank engine did test light flash?

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

There are no codes. Sometimes the battery temp sensor shows up as being too high. I'll have to check with a volt kit. I currently dont have one. And i cant crank cause i drained the battery after each new install. Last time it happened it was a crank sensor. This time it wasnt.
