Question about Cars & Trucks
If the coils are not firing, I would suggest you check the high-voltage power source for the coils. That's a quick answer off the top of my head.
Also, it is a good idea to check the distributor as if it is not working correctly, maybe the signal is probably grounding out and failing to charge the coils.
Another possibility might be the timing belt as it may not be turning the distributor correctly. This would also effectively cause the coils to hang fire.
Remember, though, that these are three possibilities out of many more. I would honestly suggest tracing the voltage from the alternator to the battery and then on through the ignition system step by step until you find the exact spot where the signal fails. Once you have found the spot, repair it.
