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 ?

50

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

18,810

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!!

    Please check your radio capacitor/ignition connected to the fender well grounded inside the engine capartment. For the no spark to plugs. My radio is out, I didn't notice it at time of break down.

    My 96 Dodge is leaking trans fluid when it's in gear. and I'm sure it's all gears but right now it appears to only do it in in reverse. Any idea what it is and how to fix it?
