To check spark, remove one of the ignition coils and stick a screwdriver in where the plug normally goes then set it down so that the metal part of the screwdriver is close to a metal part on the engine and have a friend crank to see if the spark is jumping the gap.After you lost the key who made you a new one?If I've answered your question to your satisfaction please don't forget to hit accept next to my name as it's the only way the site will compensate me for my time.
