The symptoms of a bad coil are misfire or backfire,engine stalling, hard starting and smelling fuel while trying to start, bad fuel mileage and not starting at all. If you are hearing a sparking coming from your coil its more apt to be bad ignition wires .I would start by checking plug wires and boots Hope this helps
