WON'T START

1993 Eagle Summit

1993 Eagle Summit 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 235000 miles

Vehicle has stopped while driving on two different occassions. Each time it turns over very well, but wont start. I suspect the coil, but cannot locate where it is to do an ohm test on it. First off, am I barking up the right tree with suspecting the coil? Secondly, where is the coil. I suspect it's in the distributor? Oh well, any helpful knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Willie

Do below and tell me the outcome of the results

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
