My 1986 dodge 600 won't start..the engine is cranking and gas is getting in to it but I can't get a spark..I also have changed the coil n still not gettin a spark..

i assume you have checked to make sure that the distributor is turn while cranking.if not then you have a broken timing belt,if it is turning then you probably have a bad pickup coil in the distributor.the wires that come out of the distributor that plug into a harness is part of the pickup coil.if you follow the wires into the distributor it will take you to the pickup coil itself this is the part that needs to be replaced.i trust that you checked to for battery voltage to the coil.

Without being hurtful in any way

If you have to ask a general question
about brakes,that implies you have never
done brake work,I would suggest you don't

Use the repair shop and watch as they perform the job
