does it have spark? is it coil or distributor? could be as simple as need new cap and rotor, or might be icm. start by checking for spark at the coil/ distributor, then check plugs.

I checked the spark at the coil and they are ok. what else it could be?

is fuel getting to the cylinder? pull a spark plug, crank the engine and smell for gas. if no, check icm .

Process of elimination. Get a spark tester and check each wire at the plug connection. If that is OK forget about testing the coil. Obtain a loaner tool from parts store and check pump at fitting on rail. Check pressure with pump on and running, and off. There should be no pressure drop, on only a slight drop over a five minute span of time.

I also noticed that the theft light is plinking, dose that means anything?
