94 bonneville will not start!

Hi all!
<br/> I was driving on the freeway and the engine just died(no sputtering) for about a second it did this a few times so i pulled over and let the engine idle.I drove home.
<br/> The next day the car would not start. First thing i check was for spark and there was spark in #1 plug.
<br/> I then check for fuel at the filter and replaced it. plenty of fuel. I found a broken vaccum hose at the fuel pressure regulato. Replaced it.
<br/> The car started and i let it idle for 20 mins. When I put it in drive the engine died. I could smell fuel when trying to start so i check for spark.
<br/> I not getting spark at #5 plug. Ive checked the coils and to of then read 5.9 ohms and the thrid is 6.2 ohms. I also checked the ICM which the coils mount onto.
<br/> I checked the ICM with a test light and it flashes when cranking the engine. What ive done so far is replace the two coils. But to no avail.
<br/> Im thinking it might be the crank postioner not produce a strong voltage.
<br/> Also, what is this PCM i keep reading in forums?
<br/> Thanks for your help!
