The way to check your coils is to start the car and unplug them one by one and see if the note changes, if you unplug one and the note dosnt change then thats the one thats fried.By swapping them around itl still be down a cylinder and will be hard to tell.But yes i bet it will be a coil as i have a nissan also and they do fail and makes it sound like a subaru and smell off petrol.I hope this helps.
P.S i love those S13 200sx, great shape.

Can I put a muffler system from a 1998 nissan 200 sx on a 1996 nissan sentra?

As a direct replacement, likely not, as these are very different models. The 1.6L engines are similar however, and muffles are the same. Look on for the part numbers.

My nissan 200 sx headlight wont work have canged

Check fuses, Get a tester and see if you actually get power to the lights. If you do get power and the lights don't work anyway then it is likely the light switch located on the steering column( has blinker, and light switch together). common Nissan problem.

Hello, I have a 1986 nissan 200 sx. it has 2 coils . I side of the spark plugs work but the other side does not and the coil has power to it yet no power to the plugs? Can you help?

take the coils off and go to the parts store and have them tested make sure you number them so that you don't mix the bad on with the good but i'm sure you have a bad coil.
