    I would first take the replacement coil to AutoZone or another large auto parts store and have them test it. If you have power going to the coil it should be generating a spark. If the coil is OK, your problem is the ignition module or the ignition stator as these are the items that connect to the coil and allow it to fire. I suspect this is where your problem is. You will need to replace these parts to get the car running again.
