You better figure out a way to work.

You think it could have anything to do with the spark plugs or distrubition cap.

We don't have distributor caps.... check the spark at the plugs, it may be a coil pack or ignition module.

I had someone look at it and he said that it'* either the coil packs or the fuel compression unit. He said it'* more than likely coil packs. I hope so because that'* a cheap quick fix.

That'* like saying the car won't start either because you have the wrong key, or there'* no battery.

Obviously very little troubleshooting involved in that advice. Both items are totally independent of each other.

Please check for spark at all 6 cylinders, and pull your PCM codes. Don't throw money at this thing until we know what it is. Coil packs are NOT cheap. They're $40 each.
