# 6 on the coil isnt firing

On a 1992 super coupe super charged,I replaced the spark plug wires,because the check engine light was on and it threw o 217 code witch said #3 coil,that wire was bad, it ran good after many restarts,then it dropped a cylinder,it seems that the #6 is not sparking at the coil.
does anyone no if that would mean the coil is bad?
thanks.

If no spark is coming out the spark plug wire, the coil is bad.
