1991 i think has 1 coil. Also a distributor which is most likely the problem, IF, no spark and timing belt is ok!! Did scan test show any codes?
Was any kind of testing done before parts replaced? Good ignition spark present? Fuel pressure ok? Timing belt and compression ok? These basic test got to be done FIRST! Saves time and money.

Agree with wetry, It is probably the distributor.

some vehicles use dual coil packs, some use singular. if dual, than 4. if singular than 8. is it cranking? is it clicking? double check install on spark plugs, and condition of boots on ignition coils. possible damage to plugs on install. possible damage coils from wear(boots would be kind of cooked looking).
