I replaced the spark plugs and plug wires and still no spark. Do I need to replace the ignition coil?

Could be coil or igniter. Take the big wire off the center post on distributor, stick a phillips screwdriver in it and ground the stem of screwdriver ΒΌ" away from ground. See if you have spark from coil This will go full screen

Ok thank you. Also could a 1991 celica coil work in an 88 celica?

.Yep same

awesome, I put a new ignition coil in it so now its trying to start up. It spits and sputters now. Do you possibly know if I could change the body to a 1990 celica body without any modding?
