Hello, I hear that pt quit while driving and you heard a thump,and you replaced the battery and coil and still no fire. Well it sounds like you have timing belt that broke it will keep it from firing at the coil if broke. Remove oil fill have someone spin engine over and see if camshaft turns if not turning the belt is broken. Please rate this answer, Thank you.

Did you check the camshaft position sensor without this operating properly the coil will not get a signal to spark.
