Why is there no spark from the coil?

(1994 Ford Escort)
in Walla Walla, WA on July 07, 2011
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.

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. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
Alldata is very good.
