    Remove the coil pack, rubber spark plug boot and the spark plug from the engine block. Reconnect the coil boot and spark plug and hold the coil, boot and spark plug against the engine block with a pair of INSULATED pliers. Have a helper turn the engine over and see if you get a fat blue spark from the spark plug. It helps if you are inside a dark garage or in the shade to be able to observe it better. If you do not, you have found the bad coil pack.
