it is very common for the ignition coils to fail after some use. i bet the coils are damaged. Turn the engine on, and pull the coils out of the engine a little bit like an inch or less. you can hear the spark jump and will see the engine fail. if it does not fail test with another coil that you have previously tested or preferably a new one. do this until you test all 5. if all coils are the ones from factory i recommend to change them all together if the budget fits your wallet. beware of low quality coils, they fail quickly.
