What do you mean by bad? Does it measure a different resistance.
Here is the thing on coils, I do not understand why they are not made differently, but
coils are to be run at a lower voltage, often. some like older cars, no more than 8 volts....Think about it...That is a LOT of resistance to scrub down to 8 volts, hello? the system is 13.8 to 14.9 volts NORMAL.....
But I digress.
These resistors fail and the amount that they should do, they cannot do.
One thing that I do as a diagnostic test is to buy a coil, any coil with an INTERNAL resistor. So, I can put full sysytem voltage to it....If it lasts, investigate the viotage available at the coil.

SOURCE: water pump on a 1983 944 porsche
well the thermostat is located on the radiator, it has a double pronged wire going to it. think it is on right side when you looking from the front. Water pump should be under the covering. bottom left of engine, again looking from front. Water pumps require removing the timing belt. Will be expensive my friend if you dont know how to do it yourself. The belt must be tensioned perfect to prevent from head damage. be careful.

Only thing I can think off if you getting fuel and sparks, two thing need for engine to run my guess is the timing is off. adjust the the rotor by turning it small turn forward to backward, if that don't work than more likely it completely out of time, either the chain has stretch so far and jump time completely. have a compression test done also making sure you have good compression.

It should be located under the distributar cap if I am thinking of the correct part you are asking about.
It should be a half moon looking little black box about the size of your thumb depending on how big your thumb is.
