To test spark pull off two spark plug wires off the coil pack that are side by side have someone crank it over while u watch for spark jumping from tower to tower dont touch the car while its cranking if spark jumps then u have spark let me know what u find and ill give u the next step.I think I know what it is but we need to check spark first.

Haven't got that far to check power it was running when I took to school but when I was ready to leave it would start. Done this once before. Wouldnt start but I let it set then got it started

Did u check for spark when it didn't start they way I told u just because the coil ohms out doesn't mean the car has spark when it doesn't start.
