Your just throwing parts at it and throwing money away until you do some diagnostic work. What mileage do you have and have you changed the timing belt?

No not yet but will the timing belt stop you from having spark.

yes. it will never start with a broken timing belt.
remove the camshaft sensor and try to start it. if you see the magnet spinning, chances are the belt is still intact.

Remove the camshaft position sensor,look into the opening,and have someone try to start/crank it......See if the magnet is turning inside.
If the magnet doesn't turn while cranking,your timing belt is broken,or missing teeth.

....and you don't have the engine light showing that would mean there's a fault code stored in the computer?

Its funny you mentioned you "made a turn and it shut off"
I had a neon ond one of the signs the fuel pump was going bad was a
hard left turn.
Do you hear your fuel pump run? Pressure?

It's also a sign that you have the problem that CREWZIN had with his . Check the wiring harness between the crank and cam sensor on the backside of the engine. It comes loose and rubs the axle or other parts.
