There are a few things to check.

The crank sensor will keep the car from starting. Rubbed or bare wires on the harness from crank and cam sensors to the ICM can keep it from starting. No fuel can keep it from starting. And the coil pack setup/icm can keep it from starting.

C'mon guys.. Let'* get some crank/cam sensor testing techniques listed and get this one running again.

There is also a swap that has been found that we call the "type 2" swap. It takes the bracket, ignition control module and coils from a 92+ car bolted onto your engine for a hotter spark with a lower cost per coil if they go bad in the future.

Just something to keep in mind if you have trouble again

Did you have to replace all 3 coils or was ther one just inparticular that is causing it.
I believe i read somewhere that the first coil operates the ignition.
