Not yet! That is the only thing I haven't done. What about the pick up coil?

I did try a spark plug straight from the coil and got no spark!

Did you check for a blown ignition fuse ?

No would that be in the cabin or in the engine fuse box?

19,990

The engine fuse box.

I will check

All the fuses are good.

If fuses are good and no check engine light it could be the coil or camshaft sensor just make sure the connections are tight and no sign of corrosion. That is just about everything

I already replaced the coil so I will try the camshaft! Thanks for all your help!!
