You could have a bad coil.Here is a test for the coil:

  1. Measurement of the primary coil resistance Measure the resistance between
    connector terminals 1 and 2 (the coils at the No. 3 and No. 6 cylinder sides) of
    the ignition coil, and between terminals 2 and 4 (the coils at the No.1 and No.4
    cylinder sides), and between terminals 2 and 3 (the coils at the No.2 and No.5
    cylinder sides).

Standard value: 0.74 ±10% (Ohm)

  1. Measurement of the secondary coil resistance Measure the resistance between
    the high-voltage terminal for the No.3 and No.6 cylinders, between the
    high-voltage terminals for the No.1 and No.4 cylinders and between the
    high-voltage terminals for the No.2 and No.5 cylinders.

Standard value: 13.3 ±15% (kOhm)

measuring the resistance of the secondary coil, be sure to disconnect the
connector of the ignition coil

Can I get the tool to measure the coils at a parts store what is the easiest way to do that?

Yes, all you need is a cheap voltmeter.
