Dear Phoebejanis: If your ignition coil is hot and you can get a spark coming off of the coil wire, the only thing I can suspect would be a problem with a bad rotor in the distributor. If the coil is delivering to the distributor but it travels no further, the energy must be dissipating somewhere. If a rotor has a short, the plug wires will never be delivered any spark.
Also a distributor cap with a missing carbon button which rides on the top of the rotor may be missing. I really cant think af any other things it could be.
If I have solved your problem, please let other's know by writing in, so they will learn, not to mention the ATTABOY's I might get.

Remove the front five by removing the boots using a boot-puller and then removing the plug.
The 6th plug at the rear of the engine is difficult to get out. You will need to remove the intake to accomplish that task.
Dealers charge a pretty penny for this "service" though it would not cost more than a few dollars if the vehicle had been better designed. A ten minute job turns into an afternoon here.
