Would help to know what car.

Fuel distributor suggests some variety of K-Jetronic.

Try running the engine with no spark plug in the dead cylinder. You should smell raw fuel.

It could be an ignition problem, oil leaking into that cylinder problem or no compression in that cylinder problem.

If you have an inductive timing light you can check ignition very quickly.
