If you suspect the coil than the car is turning over and not starting. Your description implies that the starter is not cranking the engine over which would not be a coil issue. I know it's petty but if you had you car towed into a shop and a diagnosis preformed based on your description there would be a substantial difference in the diagnostic charge. The ignition coil is located in the distributor behind the distributor cab. There should be power to the coil on both wires with the key on. You can check this with a test light. One of the wires should make the test light flash when you crank the enigine over. If there is no flash it is not the coil. Also make sure the rotor is turning when you crank the engine over. If it is not turning check the timing belt. If there is no power to the coil let me know and I'll get you some more info. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Changed coil but still wont fire

Yes, maybe the igniter (or ignition control module as it's called on American cars). And no, it would not be sold with the coil. It would have to be a separate purchase. Look around on the firewall, especially on the driver's side, a small black (I think) rectangular piece, a little bigger than a matchbook, with an electrical connector. I just totaled my '87 Celica so I can't go look and check the size and location for you-lol.
Before buying, check for power to the coil on the primary (+) side of the coil, when key is turned to on. If you have battery power there try a new igniter.

Ignition turns but wont start it gets fuel but does not fire

The ignition module is generally located on top of the ECU for distributor cars. For distributorless ignition cars, the ignition module is usually inside the coil pack.

Wont start, no spark,ignition coil tested good,

with the key on what is your voltage to the positive side of the coil? Should be around 12V. If not I would look at your igniter. If I remember right its located on the firewall drivers side just above the brake booster. Check and see if you have power there.

No spark

turn on your ignition and check your coil make sure you getting power to it by using light tester contact with the coil post + and -. things that wont make your electronic Ignition Control Module fire, Camshaft Reference Mark Sensor if is bad, this sensor located next to the flywheel and its sense the rotation of the flywheel sending the single to computer and comp. send single to the coil to fire as your distributor disperse the sparks to each plugs. assuming if the ignition control module are good. hope that help some

Ignition module

The Ignition module of your Century.
The ignition coils are tie on the ignition module.
But LET ME tell you, something about your problem with the battery,
The Ignition Module is the LESS posible to Drain the Battry,
Because only use 3 connector, and the Ign. module is powered
with the ignition switch, is mean when you Turn the key to OFF.
All the power of the Ign. module Cut off.
If the ignition has no power when the car is OFF, impossible
Drain the battery,

I recomend check that all the lights went off after you close all the doors. Check the glove box light, Trunk light.
Some times the Factory Radio on chevys give up this problem, If the car is equipaded with a Aftermarket alarm.
You should check the circuit.

I'm a mechanic,
I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...
