Put a module in the distributor. It most likely is bad, not the coil. You can use a 12 v test light to check for voltage at the coil. Most of the time, the module is bad. Pop the cap, 4 half turn screws, take off the rotor, two screws, then turn the engine by bumping the starter till the distributor posts that hold the rotor are away from the module. Two screws and two plug ins hold the module down. Be sure and use a small amount of die electric grease on the bottm metal surface of the new module. It helps keep heat away. Simple fix actually. Buy an extra module (they are cheap) and keep it and your tools in the glovebox in case of emergency. Look at the pic. At the 10 o'clock position is your module. Just be careful taking the connectors off as they get brittle with age. A pocket screwdriver works well. Just gently pry them off.
