   I had nearly the same problem you are having about a month and a half ago except in my case the car just died on the onramp.  If you are getting a hall sensor code it could very well mean that the infamous drive gear for the distributor is broken.  That's what happened to me.  The car would crank but never catch.  I obtained a new entire distributor from a list member, but if it is just the gear i think you can purchase a metal substitute for the flimsy plastic original.
