Have a Nice Day? 87 subaru XT Ignition Problem

87 subaru XT Ignition Problem....
Can anyone please help? I lent my XT to someone and had to drive 160 miles to pick it up. Ran for 2 years no problems - has 140K miles on it - now it seems like there is no spark coming from coil. Asked a mechanic and he said has never replaced a bad coil in 30 years. Replaced cap, rotor, battery cable, a wire that goes into the distributor to the negative side of coil and a black wire that goes to negative side of coil from a wire panel that has jumpers attached to side of antifreeze storage tank. The new coil was the wrong oneand heated up so hot that I thought it was going to bolw. Checked timing belts, rotor turns and I can smell gas when trying to start. What could it be? Don't have lots of $$ to pay someone to do major diagnostics. Before this, car has NEVER left me stranded. Please Help CHRIS [email protected]

Hmmm I am not sure... there are alot of people over on the USMB with EA82 vehicles and I am sure one of them has seen this before.

www.ultimatesubaru.net is your best bet if no one answers here
