SOURCE: No spark from the coil,
Your either not going to believe this or hate me for it. Your ECM has a "cold start" circuit with a special set of commands to start the car when cold. It might have lost the command to fire the coil.

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.
