Re: i cant get spark out of the coil pack
Cam sensor fires the injectors to synchronise injector pulsing with the spark at the spark plugs.. U need to probably change the crankshaft sensor (around the crank pulley) as the crank sensor is what controls the ignition spark.
hope that does it.

Hi Thomas, You seem to have attended all that is required for the spark. Check the wiring and if it's fine I would suggest you have a diagnostic scan carried on on the vehicle. That will pinpoint the problem and allow a long term fix. Regards John
If its not getting spark the choices are limited. You already replaced the coil pack so whats left is ignition module, crank sensor, knock sensor, cam sensor, or the timing was not was not set properly when putting it back together. Any one of those would create a no spark situation.
Sounds like it is either a bad coil pack, cam position sensor or crank position sensor. The coil pack delivers the spark to the plugs and the 2 sensors tell the computer when to tell the coil pack to spark.
If you have replace new cam sensor with no sparks and the coil are good putting out 12 volt, my guess would be the computer it self faulty. cam sensor sense the cam turning and send info to computer telling computer to disperse the charge from the coil pack to the plugs assuming relay, cam sensor, coil, plugs, and wires are good. make sure the cam sensor is put in properly and position.
Make sure cam and crank sensor are active. pcm must see these signals before allowing primary part of coil pack to energize. crank sensor will be possible suspect,usually located on engine to bell housing. flexplate or flywheel is the reluctor wheel or like a shutter wheel for the sensor to identify the position of crank for spark delivery. see if you have voltage at harness to coilpack with key on? if not you have another problem.
