Hello - for a "no spark condition", I would check for problem codes first, whether the Check Engine Light is on or not. Any saved codes, whether transient, or permanent, could be very helpful with this diagnosis. I would suspect, and check, the auto stop relay at this point. This provides power to the coils. If you would like assistance with this problem, I would recommend an inspection of your ignition system by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
