Hello. New to the forum. My 2004 Sabre started missing while taking it out one day. Good crank, good battery, all fuses good. Starting to think I lost an ignition coil. Any suggestions to wear to look for any potential problems?

Thanks in advance.

Check for spark on each cylinder by pulling off the plug wire and using an old plug or a screwdriver to see if it sparks to the head when cranking. These have 2 plugs per cylinder that work together, so either side will work for testing.

Sorry I took so long to get back here. I have confirmed I have spark. It now appears to be a fuel supply problem. I will update after I've done some more research and inspections.

I've replaced the fuel cutoff relay and no change. Bought a replacement fuel pump and plugged it in before installing. No power to the fuel pump. I'm now pulling the harness apart to hopefully find a short. Got frustrated and had to take a break.

You may already know this but the pump will not run unless the engine is cranking.
