Ignition Coil?

When a coil go bad, does the engine shut down without a warning?
My XJ stopped yesterday as sudden as if the ignition is turned off. I was at about 45 MPH. I cannot get it to restart.

I threw parts at it, parts I had on the self, Crankshaft, and Camshaft sensors, but I do not have a coil. I also tried a known good PCM. Checked ignition and wire connectivity. Every thing look good except it have no spark. It have plenty of power to the coil and plenty of fuel but no spark.

What other things should I look at? I have a PC based manual but it do not give coil testing procedures.
