cannot be specific, had a 98 (now a 99). remember they fire twice- compression and exhaust. if you don't get and answer soon, look up firing order and everyother one should fire together, limiting combinations to two. It doesn't care what stroke it is on

The reason I'm asking this is because a dual coil fires BOTH plugs at the same time. If one plug doesn't fire right, the other won't either, even to a point that neither does. Kepp the coils where they are and swap the plugs and wires and see if you have a change. Let me know

you can test it but removing wires on the coil. they should have same strength as 1 and 4. if they are weaker then you have a bad coil. if nothing happens your have a bad module.
if you want put the 1,4 coil on the suspected bad tabs on the module and see if spark is same strength.that should do it. you pretty much did the right thing is swaping with what testing equipment you have to work with.
its most likely a bad module though. very common. when you test something always have someone explain how its tested and how it works.
