Yes, a bad coil will prevent the ignition from firing and the engine will not start.

No. It will cause it to not start but it will still turn over.

A bad ignition coil will cause your engine not to have any spark. Without any spark the engine cannot start or run.

You can test the ignition coil on a car by using a multimeter. A bad ignition coil can be the cause of a car not starting.

You bet. A bad coil and you have no spark to the plugs. No spark and the fuel cannot be ignited.

Temperature can cause damage to the ignition coil. Temperature which is above 150 degrees Celsius can cause a great damage to it.

When an ignition coil goes bad the car will not run right, or not at all. An intermittent coil will cause shudder, or a jerking motion. When the coil has no output then the cylinder that the coil feeds cant burn the fuel and cause power.

The engine will either not start, or run poorly if the coil is bad.

The coil on a 2.5L is built inside the distributor.

The ignition coil is located just to the right of your car's engine. An easy way to locate it is to follow the wires from your spark plugs. The other end of the cable is connected to the ignition coil.

Start the engine and hold it at 3000 rpm until the cooling fan comes on. Then allow the engine to idle for about five minutes with all accessories OFF and with the transmission in Park or Neutral.

Does it turn over? Check for fuel and spark--could be bad fuel pump or bad ignition coil
