Usually the first thing that I would check is a bad ground of the coil itself. Now if that does not work then you should let a professional do this but it is an old trick, but power up the coil manually by grounding the bottom of it to the car and then taking a wire from the pos side of the battery touch the batt post of the cap. You olny need to do this for a second. Then take the wire away from the battery and DO NOT TOUCH THE CENTER OF THE CAP!!!! but ground out the top of the cap. YOU WILL SEE A SPARK!!! if you do not then more than likely the cap is breaking down and not holding a charge. A coil not sparking could be many things like a ignition module it could be the crankshaft possition sensor or camshaft position sensor

the question,im not sure what your asking but the ignition coil would be the coil that feeds spark to you distributor,there woll be a coil wire or spark plug wire that runs from the coil to the center of your distributor cap and will have an electril wire from your ignition that supply's 12 volts to the terminal marked "+" on the coil when the key switch is turned to the run or start pos.and a electrical wire that runs from the distributor to the terminal marked "-"on the coil,unless it is a newer vehicle that has a coil for every cylinder,which would have a coil mouter over or close by every spark plug.
