Hello
I am looking for a decent spark tester for cars equipped with the coil on plug system as well as for cars that have a deep well where the spark plug sits in that have spark plug wires.

not looking to break the bank, but would like something that is reliable and durable.

thanks much

I use an old induction timing light. Simply connect to 12 volts and clamp the induction clamp around the suspect wire and if it flashes you know you have spark.

Free, if you have one. If not, you could buy a cheap one ( $25) or someone may suggest a less expensive "real" checker.
