Let me see if I understand your question...

You asked, (Where does a coil on a car get it's juice from? Correct?aror

Well, Let start out by CORRECTING the Earor made in Solution # 1.

Brad B. In Solution 1 stated that in old cars: " the Distributor signaled the coil with a constant ground." Sorry, that is not the case. In older cars in the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's the battery applied 6-volts or 12-volts to the primary winding terminal of the coil. The other primary winding terminal of the coil went to the points inside the Distributor.

So evrey time the points would closed to ground, the battery voltage would energized the the primary coil. Creating an induction transfer into the secondary winding of the coil. Creating a high-voltage increse sent to the center of the distributor cap and the rotor sending that high-voltage to the spark plugs to fire the cyclenders. So it all begins with the battery sending it "JUICE" to the coil...

As for the newer cars of today, they have all become dependent on sensors attacthed to many parts of the car and engine, transmission, and more that sent signals to 2, 3, 4 and sometimes more onboard computers. Todays cars are that an expencive mess. Only because of big, greedy, designs by auto makers to complicate cars so mush to the average people, they have very little choice but to have the dealers do all the reparis.

No spark from coil but has power to it

when you turn the key on you put juce to the coil and the points in the dist. open and shut closing the field causing spark. so i would say you need new points.
to get by you could clean them but usualy they wont last long after you clean them.
