Default 96 1.8 mx5 cylin-derp 1 and 4 arent firing!!

car starts and Idles fine but car felt very sluggish when driving . Im not getting spark to my 1 and 4 cylindars, Ive replaced the wires, plugs and checked the distributor to see if its 180 out but all is good. Checked the timing. How can you tell if the CAS is bad or out needs adjusting?

Thanks in advance for any help.

swap plugs wires at the coil pack with 4&1 to 2&3. do you now have spark on 1&4 and not 2&3?

and not sure what motor you were messing with a distributor with...
