thats not likely, get a preasure guage and insure that your getting enough gas needed for the Fuel injection system. if you can see it, it is most likely working correctly. is there any type of codes running??

I dont know why it couldnt be the coil, could also be the distributor. Something could have gotten wet as well...

its got spark but i dont know if a bad coil will reduce the spark or make it not spark at all. also i think it is a sensor or a relay or something but i have no idea how to figure that out
