xomojo is on a distinguished road
Default no spark

Newb here, first post..
Haven't driven my dads ram in almost a year, but of course when I do it breaks..
I hit a bump on a dirt road and it started to cut off and on.. I made it back home (bout 8 miles) stalled out about 4 times on me and the cutting off and on got more violent.. Now it won't start at all and has no spark.. I checked all fuses are good but thats as far as I got.. How do I test the coil.? or troubleshoot this no spark issue..
Its an 01 with the 5.7 I believe.. a little neglected.. Who knows the last time he tuned it up.. When checking for fuel I got the air cleaner off to discover a K&N that hasn't been cleaned in forever.. Bad, but not spark related..
Ran great, as usual, on the way out to that dirt road.. And my dad had spent the day working on the a/c before I took it out..
I did a 'no spark' search on the forum but couldn't find anything.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. Would the truck tell me the problem with the right diagnostic equip.? what would I need to read the codes.?
Thanks, Joe

It's either an '01 or it has a 5.7. The Hemi wasn't offered in the Ram until '03. Really need more specific info because of the vast differences between the BR/BE and DR series trucks.
