No, not the coil. you just showed it is a gas problem with your starting fluid test. 32psi sounds too low, so before you suspect the injectors not pulsing, you need to check with Mazda for the specific pressure for your protege. There is a problem with the pump or the pressure regulator, but something is not right. Multi-port injection systems usually are 40--45psi and above.

recheck the battery and connections new doesnt mean free from defects or loose connections if battery good check and test the starter --as to fuel filter and pump if it turned over and did not start you could consider putting them in the equation but yours car in not turning over
Fuel pump is electric and located in the fuel tank. To replace it, the tank has to be lowered, then with non-sparking punch and mallet, spin the ring off the tank, carefully remove the pump and sending unit, replace the pump and put it all back together.
The not turning over sounds like the battery is dead. Put a battery charger on it, bring to a full charge, then check it with a load tester to ensure there are no dead cells. If it still doesn't turn over, the starter may be dead. In this case it would require pulling off the starter, take it to a shop or parts store that has the capability to check the starter.
i had a similar problem and called the dealer during lunch hour. i talked to a mechanic, the distributor in these vehicles is plastic, and is prone to cracking.not just the cap but the body also, I have been taking the cap off and wiping the moisture out of the cap. or replacing the cap but the problem is I need a new distributor. just a cheep way to get rolling is cleaning the inside of the cap, especially when it is very damp or the outside temp changes alot during the day. good luck.
