Default Haven't found the Solution!no start/no spark

I have been reading different posts on here and have not found the solution yet! hopefully someone can help me out.
I'm working on a 1997 saturn sl2 vin7 dohc 5spd! like others the car would start in the morning no problem but when it was warm would not, if we let it cool down it would fire right up, and this gradually got worse. now the car has no spark and no start. It is getting fuel and so far I have changed the ingnition control module(used from a running car)( cleaning for good ground and using silicone) and two coil packs( from running car), crank sensor( new), plugs(new), wires(new), checked all fuses, traced wiring to the fire wall but not inside, all looks good no corrosion, no grounds, and no cuts! car has had recent timing belt, water pump, starter, alternator, fuel filter and oil change ( for you oil fanatics on here!) car was running great even after all the work was done. If someone could give me an idea of how and what else I can test that would be great.

Check the ignition fuse in the underhood fuse block, it should be labeled eis on the bottom side of the cover. Other than that, double check and make sure the crank sensor is seated all the way into the block.

I checked all of the fuse under hood and in the car on passenger side. cps is seated and plugged in, wires all look great. any other thoughts?

By any chance did you use silicone grease in the ICM connector (ignition module)?

Do you have an SES light?

Is the Crank Shaft Position sensor any good? What is the resistance between the 2 pins?

When you turn the key to on do all of the dash lamps light up?

Hot no-spark that "gets better" when cool ==> classic CPS failure.
