Which cylinders have spark? The coil packs on these fire in pairs. It should be 1 and 4 and then 2 and 3. Just one of these sets firing could be a sign of a bad coil pack or maybe even just bad plug wires. Are the wires new or old?

Yeah he could've easily hit it or caused some sort of damage through vibration of removing the motor.
