My 1997 Cali is only firing on the right cylinder. There is no spark to the left plug and the HT lead and cap seem OK.

I presume this is a coil failure (there appears to be a coil for each cylinder). Is there anything else which I might be missing before I spend £70 or so on a new coil?

Cheers for any replies.

check all connections but seems like coil simple test swap wires so left coil is to right and vice versa if fault swaps bingo, you have to swap feeder wires the lt side
