The crank sensor on this car is a durable item. I've replaced only 2 or 3 in the 15 years this engine has been out, and I see these cars almost daily. This sensor is hiding down below your oil filter and is hard to see. The resistance test is a good starting point, but checking its voltage output would be impotant. The sensor should generate somewhere between 0.5 and 1.0 volts depending on cranking speed. I'd look to make sure that the spark is missing at the coil and not just the plugs. Most of the failures I see in these cars are in the secondary ignition. The usual culprits are the cap and rotor. Good luck!
