1994 Ford Escort Q&A
1994 Ford Escort Question: Why is there no spark from the coil?
Engine was running after I replaced spark plugs and air filter (and oil change and filter). Car stopped running one day later and now there is no spark coming from coil. - Visitor
I suspect something inadvertently got disconnected, it has got to be simple. You would need a voltmeter and a wiring diagram to start looking for power to the coil, fuses and location of components.
