... and the only bad hose I found was on the relay (what does this do?) on the fender that's switched by vacuum off the intake manifold. I'd already replaced the hose from the intake but the one along the fender was also torn so I replaced that. Still no start, I get one cough and then nothing....
that "relay" is a solenoid switch (#14). the ecu tells it when to open to allow fumes from the charcoal canister (#18 hidden inside the fender) back into the engine intake to be burned up. It won't affect a no start, but can affect smooth idle.
what hose 'along the fender' do you mean?
so you are 100% sure you now have spark at the plugs?
as Eric says remove all plugs and spin the starter a few times in case you've flooded the engine.
What I do in case you have caused fuel wash (multiple no start attempts have washed the bores with fuel) is to also squirt some fresh oil down the bores....leave a while, then put plugs back in (cleaned, or new whatever!) and try start.
Personally I don't see the coil as the culprit...."driving along and the car just died"...but there you go. Have you tested this 'bad' coil, primary and secondary resistances?
If you have spark and clean plugs and and it still won't fire, I'd be looking at fuel pressure regulator (#7)
Check the small vacuum hose on top has no raw fuel in it, if it does, it's shot.
