Could be a number of things, your leads could need replacing, A fuel filter blocked, dirty injectors or a computer issue..... when the car was running did any lights come up, Like the engine light?

Yes, all the dash lights lit up momentarily when it shut off. It is getting juice to the coil, but the coil is not putting out spark. We have put two new coils on it now.

That's normal for those lights to come up for a second when the motor shuts its self off anyway. Maybe check your battery terminals are tight?, and not corroded.
