Well you hit all the major ones, could be crank position sensor, ignition module, a bad coil pack (it should have 3), you need to check that you have spark to each plug while the engine is turning over (!!!be careful as this will hurt if you get shocked!!!), this will rule out coil packs. if you have no spark to any plug your looking at a bad ingnition module (which is what the coil packs bolt to). Hope this gets you on the right track!

Wont start, engine turns strong, new battery, new plug wires?? Thinking coils are bad???


take off one plug wire from one of the coils, turn starter and see if a spark jumps, you will be able to hear the sparks if you are by the door turning the key. if you get no sparks the ignition module is bad, if you do get spark try same test for remaining plug wires one at a time. you may have a bad coil
