Default no spark on 2 cylinders

Does any in the Birmingham AL have a spare coil for 1.6L. Just need to check and see if my coil is bad or if I have another problem.

If it's cylinders 1/4 or 2/3, just swap the spark plug wires between your two current coils. If the problem suddenly switches to the other pair of cylinders, then you have a bad coil.

If it's cylinders 1/3 or 2/4, then it's something having to do with your injector wiring, ECU, or CAS.
