33 No spark!!

hi all, having snags getting my s3 to fire up. The engine is turning over but just not catching. I removed one of the spark plugs to check for a spark but can see absolutely nothing. Have changed plugs also to see if that was the problem but still the same. Not being the greatest mechanic I was wondering if anyone out there has had the same problem or point me in the right direction of where to start looking.
many thanks chatz

Re: 33 No spark!!

Which engine have you?

My first port of call would be to check the wiring for loose connections at the coil then check the distributer.

Re: 33 No spark!!

thanks will go check, engine is 1.7 8v i.e. can see that the plug leads go into a distributor module as opposed to a conventional distributor cap. will see if I can a voltage from there.
