Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Engine make and model? Single cylinder? A single wire to the oil? Remove the single wire and check for spark with the plug grounded to the metal of the engine. If no spark, coil is bad or the coil is being grounded out! The only thing that makes the spark is the coil and the magnet in the flywheel.
