Question 2000 bonnie not throwing code

took the car for a bite to eat at lunch break, refused to start after I obtained my personal pizza. bout a week prior I had noticed a tick from under the hood almost like a arch that sounded like it was coming form the coil pack area, faint but noticeable. the first thing i did was pull the plug wires off the packs the last two packs leads were new and shiny the first pack however had extremely rusted leads, great got a new coil pack after work, cleaned up the two spark plug wires that were in contact with the rusted leads, finished up with some dielectric grease, fired up on the first try tick was gone and I'm ready to give random hi-fives. let it idle for a few and decided to fill the tank at the shell just down the road, it died just before i got there and i coasted into the pump area. the car was towed to a buddy'* garage and will tackle it this Sunday.

when i got home I cleaned up that old coil and put my fluke DMM to it. completely open circuit across the leads so that was the original issue, what other dammage could that bad coil have done? whats a good starting point the other 2 coil packs or the ign mod?

thanks~

You may have over loaded the O2 sensor and cat.

Not always. A scan will show if the O2 is going bad. They only throw a code when they fail. If you happen to be in the area, stop in and I'll give it a scan.

ive had a few of those go, so its been my experiance when the coils go they start running very poorly, but it will run on the remaining cyl. when the module goes it does just like you say either no start and no codes or warm up and stall out no codes.
