Ok, lets try this - I need a little more data.

Is the engine turning over like it always did? Is the engine firing while turning over? What test did you do for spark?

I do not understand this part:
"when am roling over the motor i have no spark from coil as soon as I am letting of of the key I get 1 spark"
Can you clarify?
