93 probe gt

My car is not getting a spark. It's getting fuel, as the plugs are being flooded, but I checked for spark and dont seem to be getting one. The coil is integrated into the distributor, and I dont know how to check to see if its still good, but the car was running fine, then just stopped, what could go wrong to cause the car to not produce a spark. What things can I do to check for spark?

Wait a minute. If you don't know how to check for spark how do you know that's the problem?
It might be getting spark but at the wrong time.

He didn't say he didn't know how to check for spark. He said he didn't know how to check the integrated coil/distributor. Most likely it is the distributor cap or rotor. What kind of car is this?

93 Probe GT. It will have coil packs, no distributor...I believe the engine will be a 2.5L DOHC V6. Correct me if I'm wrong though...
