I assume this is a 4 cylinder engine.
Remove the coil cover as you did when you replaced the spark plugs. Connect the wiring harness to the cover, install one of your old spark plugs in the cover boot and ground the spark plug casing to the engine with a jumper wire. Remove the fuel pump relay and have someone crank the engine over, you should see a spark jump.
Let me know.
Regards,

You can go to an autoparts store and buy a simple spark tester.

I have a 95 ford contour can't get any spark . changed the spark plugs, fuel pump, and fuel filter, and air filter.


I'd suggest getting a chilton or Haynes book for your car first. Very handy! If no spark, you can test the coil with an ohmmeter, and test wires to it. Another possibility is wires to crankshaft position sensor shorted, or sensor is bad. This sensor tells computer when to fire, and if bad, you get no spark situation. Also check any fuses that have to do with ignition.

Engine turns over fast, wont fire, has fuel,


Since it don't fire, you need to check your spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor/coil pack, dist.cap, rotor, cam sensor, crank sensor. It may be the computer but that is last possibility. Each one of these effect the fire to the engine. You need to test what you can. It could be anyone of them.

this is caused because a misfire, misfire will be caused by defective or misrouted spark plug wires, make sure to check the firing order, on the plug wires, and if you just replace the spark plugs, then most likelly the wires are misrouted, and the cat gets hot because unburnt fuel like runing too rich, and will be related with misfire.
