    It is a pain to replace the opti. I would check for spark first.

    you can get a pen like tool that you place on the wires and it should pick up the charge and light a little neon bulb. Not sure how easy they are to find though. Another way, and haven't tried this my self yet is to take a plug and ground it to the block, just be carefull you don't zapped.

    yes this is called a test light...

    you can also use a voltmeter or anything like that

    you can get a test light at autozone

    yeap, look for something called a spark tester, then you you know you will get the right item, some slip into the the plug boot, other you just place on the wire (handy for finding a break)

    another way is to pull one spark plug wire. Take the open part of the boot and put it on something metal where it can arc to. an exhaust manifold stud usually works good. Have someone crank the engine and look for the spark.

    Correct. Find any old plug, insert it in the wire and ground it out. If you see spark.. well question answered.

    If you can save a little more might as well do some upgrades while it is apart.
