Ok, this is in the wrong section. My advice is to use capital letter, commas, periods, etc. Following basic grammar rules will go a long way here.

More details would help. Did it die idling, or 20 minutes after you pressure washed the engine, or were you tracking it? Did it run fine before, or was this something that started as a miss, then a dead miss and a CEL, then it got worse, then it finally died? Come on, help us help you. Also mention how you tested some of these things, did you have the battery test at Autozone or did you put a wire to it and see a spark.

dead coil pack could be the culprit

Thank You for the comments on my grammar. I write code all day long so i type like i am still writing code.

Anyway CAS anyone have an extra one laying around it must be that its the only thing i have not checked. It just died out as in had no power left to fire.

i used the book to test to go through and test everything.

Voltometer and what not the batt is good it cranks like a champ has a brand new optimum in it.

Heres the story.

I am driving and it just stopped all lights on the dash and the motor just died. I thought it was a fuse of some sort but nope.
Anyone in the area that is reputable in diagnosing this problem ? I have no problem with paying or feeding you

the CAS triggers fuel and ignition pulses. Since you are not getting any spark see if you are getting fuel.
