Default No spark

I have a 95 subaru imprezza l 1.8L. One day may car was running and then it stopped and wouldn't start. I replaced the coil pack and still none of the plugs are getting spark. I would greatly appreciate some help with this, as it is my daily driver.

You could have bought a bad coil pack. Check you igniter, make sure that it is getting power. Make sure your wires are in good condition also. If everything checks out OK, then you might have a bad ground somewhere. Bad grounds are such a joy to find.

Ignitor, cam position sensor, crank position sensor. The three most common culprits to no spark issues.

Check voltages and grounds from there.

Did you check the timing belt?

Also, if you can, pull the trouble codes. To do this you connect the two green connectors under the driver side dash, then the CEL should start flashing. Long flashes are a 10 and short flashes are a 1.

So long, short, short would be 12 and long, long, short would be 21.
