Crank/no start, wet plugs, fuel smell, no fire..............

You need to get a spark tester and see if you're getting a good spark at the plugs and go from there.

You also need to check your timing belt if equipped and make sure it's not broken.

pop cap on distributor it turns so is it safe to say timing belt is not broken?
is grounding plug against metal surface not a good way to test for spark?
