different models have different setups for the where the coil is located. follow spark plug wires and that should lead you to it generally. the coil makes high voltage to jump the gap on the spark plug. would help if you said what company makes your vehicle.

the plug wires might all lead into a distributer and then there is another wire comming out of the distributer that goes to the ignition coil. or the plug wires might all lead up to a coil pack which is seperate little coils all together.

what u are looking for should be located near the battery under the hood maybe a little bit back mounted some where ... it will have metal prongs an when you use a screw driver to touch the two prongs together it should make ur car try to turn over
