If the rear plugs are awful to get to, just check for spark at the fronts. That is assuming each coil ignites both a front and rear cylinder. If any coil connects to two rears, then check it with the wires out and the screws/clips in the coil towers to provide a reasonable (1/2") gap.

Let me try and figure out how to upload a picture or a video. I test the plugs with a dummy light. You know, it plugs into the boot of the plug wires? I’m not challenging why y’all are asking in any means possible.
How much of a gap do they jump? Is it a nice blue color and does it crack when it goes?

Yeah it’s a pain to get to them. You’re talking about at the coil pack or the spark plug? Checking it that way

Are you saying all three coils do produce a spark? Yeah, a good spark will be bluish-white.

But my most preferred one to see if a coil pack can fire is this one. Like grc said, and bill also, if no bluish whitish spark at half inch, not getting saturated enough to give 40kv spark.
