I have a 1998 nissan frontier XE 4cyl 2wd that wont spark. I have already replaced the distributor, rotor, wires and plugs and it still has no spark. I would like to check the coil but I'm not sure where to look. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, that's almost as cool as the lady who's brakelights came on in the middle of the night whenever it got cold. It seems like you almost have to have a questionable connection between the battery and starter and the extra water is finishing the job. See if your engine compartment is leaking and, if it is, follow the water. Check the battery ground at the engine block.
Just a guess, but I would say this truck ran low on oil at one time. The result is the crank bearings took a beating. You may get away with just replacing the bearings and a rear seal. This engine is amost 'bullet-proof''! Frankster016
Its the distributor that needs to be replaced. Its probably the coil alone that bad but the coil is built into the distributor, so you will have to replace as one unit. Make sure when replacing the distributor you set the car in base timing thats the rotor head tointed to cylinder #1 and number on piston on TDC(topdead center)before you remove distributor shaft then repalce in the same position and your problem should be solved. Good Luck
