    my ignition coil broke as i was trying a power balance test after seeing it in the new 2 honda elements video. right after i pulled out spark plug wire #2 the rpms dropped and the engine just shut off then wouldn’t turn back over. i got my test light and started searching and there’s power at the igniter and it works properly on the negative terminal for the coil but no spark coming out of the coil itself.

    i’m wondering if this happening can be a result of the test or maybe could it be a sign of something bigger? maybe i didn’t give it enough time between putting wire #3 back in? (i tested them in descending order). it’s on my 1993 honda del sol with a d16z6 with about 143k on it and it’s never given me any trouble turning over before. I’m hoping that it was just old and an incredible coincidence
