You will need to take the houseing off around the ignition should only be a couple of screws. Then here comes the fun bit, You will have to see if you can get hold of the tool that undoes and does up the bolts (as I will call them for you not there proper name but tech name may have you going the what ) that hold the ignition on or if not fussy you could just drill them out lift the ignition off after unlocking the steering lock so turn onto first click so radio would normally come on and with the new one you can always just change the bolts that may or maynot come with it( and most times they don't) with hex head ones or what ever is your fancy, but remember if you put it on with a spanner a thief can undo it with one, install just a reverse on uninstall. then you just screw the houseing back on. You maybe able to find or may know someone with ability to get the tool for the original bolts or if handy with a grinder and have a piece of metal around you could try making one. Most are a sort of rounded out triangle, but they usually only do up easily and are very hard to undo without the proper tool and most mechanics will just replace them with new ones as the reverse direction is rounded up to the back side to make it very difficult for a thief to simply undo in a few minutes, I've known people who have used a flat screw driver and smashed a groove into them to undo but remember that will also make them easy for a thief to just remove and bypass your ignition system ie steering locks and soforth

It does not have an ignition control module. The PCM (powertrain control module) fires the coil pack based on signal it recieves from the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor.

Under the hood on the fender it is about 5 inches by 5 inches with two plug wire harnesses coming out of it.It is aluminum.

Are you sure the spark is sufficient? I have seen weak coils cause your problem also bad coil wires loosing to much voltage to the distributor.
