SOURCE: no spark leaving coil
First determine what ignition sys yu have, is it a DIS, (direct ignition system) which does not have a distributor,
if you have a distributor first i will check the ignition rotor, make sure it is not brned through and if you find that the ign rotor is burned replace the rotor and also the spark plug wires which caused the rotor damage.
secondly if you have a distributor check that the pick up coil is in good condition check for continuity using an omh meter, disconect the wire coming out of the pick up coil (the one in the distributor, not the coil inside the distributor cap!!) and connect an omh meter to it if you have ressistance the the cois contunity is good however make sure that the pick up is not grounded if the pick up is ok the you have either a ignition module in the distributor is bad or the ecm is no good. Hope thsi solves the problem, Good luck ( Roby).
If it is a DIS the the first thing to check is the crank sensor, suing an omh meter and if the sensor is ok most of the time the vehicle's computer (ECM) has to be changed.

when you turn the key on you put juce to the coil and the points in the dist. open and shut closing the field causing spark. so i would say you need new points.
to get by you could clean them but usualy they wont last long after you clean them.

power not reaching cylinder 1 ignition coil. check electrical connections and wiring for any damage. test for power and ground at cylinder 1.
hope this helps.
