1996 eclipse gst MT - no spark to cyl #2 and #3

Hi, everyone and thanks for your help!!

Here is the problem:

I got a code P0300- multiple cylinder misfire

Things done to car:

1-changed spark plugs and wires
2-got new ignition coil (for cylinders 2 and 3)
3-checked compression- about 175 psi across the board


I am not getting any spark into cylinder #2 and #3 from coils, but yes into #1 and #4.
I do get power from ignition coil connector (female end). How do i check if it is the (male end) connector of the ignition coil connector? I am thinking this is the problem, since i do get power and cylinders #1 and #3 are firing. Also, could it be the ignition power transistor? How do I check that?

any help is much appreciated!!

i wasn't getting spark on #2 & #3 either i figured it out it was my cam positioning sensor it was crack so check that out. i also changed the wires coil's compression test and so much more and come to find out a new cam gear and a sensor fixed the problem.

Welcome to AF.

I would recommend you investing in a shop manual. They are cheap and will help you out a lot. It will show you how to test the power transistor and the cam sensor.
