I have a 97 kia sephia 1.8 DOHC 16 valve motor we came home one night parked the car and went out and tried to start the car the next day and it cranked over but did not start. we have replaced the crank sensor cap rotor and distributor and still no fire we are getting power to one of the wires that go to the distributor and nothing to the others. I have not check the timing yet I am going to do that later. but I thought I would ask here to see if i can get some more help first.

You have made no mention of when the timing belt was last replaced.. A few missing teeth on a worn belt will allow the timing to shift and a "no start" condition..
If the tb hasn't been replaced in quite awhile it's a good candidate to cause your problems...You are lucky that the 1.8L in your car is a non-interference engine and usually replacing the tb will get you going again.
