      I have no spark on cylinder #2 (I think that's the one, passenger side middle one). After testing, I have fuel, every other cylinder works fine, I just don't have spark on that one cylinder. The coil pack's resistance checks out fine.

      So is it possible for one cylinder to go out on the coil pack? The cylinder on the other side of that coil works fine. I just don't see how only one of them could fail. I don't think it's a sensor issue, as it would likely cause all the cylinders to run bad, but I have a distinct one cylinder miss. I need some help fast, in a couple hours I'll be in town to get what I need.

      have you checked the plug and plug wire? You could move them to another cylinder and see if the problem moves with them

      Yes, the plug and wire are good. I have done everything possible to be sure the spark problem is at the coil pack.

      Try another coil pack. inspect the coil pack for cracks, etc.. On my 97 I had a nasty crack across it.

      Mine isn't cracked, but has been knocked around some. I should note the coil pack is maybe a year old.

      I guess I'll go and pick up another one. I had hoped I saved my old one, but I didn't.

      Put a good spark plug wire on the questionable position of the coil pack and test for spar.

      Its quite possible you will need a new coil pack.

      Good luck ......

      That's exactly what I did. I'll get a new coil pack tonight, hopefully that fixes it.

      I was just hoping I could get away from the $70 coil pack.

      Got a new coil pack tonight, got home too late to install. I'll report back tomorrow once I get it on there.

      New coil pack is in, runs like a new truck. Thanks Guys.

      On another note, never buy coil packs from Autozone....
