Question about Cars & Trucks
The car was in an accident. My son rear ended someone and ran over a street sign. The car drove away from the accident, about 5 miles, but died when he got to school and tried to park it. We first checked for spark and we don't have spark so we changed the ignition coil. Still no spark. I pulled the timing belt cover and the timing belt is whole. we also pulled the cam sensor and checked it with a magnet. It shows a voltage change when the magnet passes by it. What else can I do to diagnose the problem?
Check to see if the fuel shut off has been tripped some times they
do not completely trip in wreck but trip a short time later some times
even bumpy roads cause them to trip without wreck

SOURCE: #5 cylinder misfire
I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?
The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.
Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.
