1998 daewoo nubira engine cuts out while driving. Have been told its the coil pack. Could this be possible

Customer: Manual transmission. 156000
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Just purchased the car. Yes myself
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
