Pull the cap off the disty, and check that the rotor is secured to the disty shaft. There is a little screw that likes to fall out.....when it does, the rotor spins and makes spark but at totally random timing.

If it is the crank sensor, that is in the disty as was stated. Easiest way is to replace the whole distributor. As for the rotor, I had that happen to me. Loyale died while I was driving...cost me two weeks and $250 for a ten dollar/ten minute fix...sigh. Hope that saves you the same trouble .

Incidentally, if your passenger side belt is the one broken the car should at least try to start (if I'm not mistaken). The driver side belt will keep it from running, but not the passenger side. And it's a non-interference engine, so no problem if it is broken. It is also possible the belt/s jumped a tooth, which you can't check without removing the covers.
