got a horrible misfire the other night, flashing engine light then stayed lit. got home and found water in the plug wells. cleaned them out the best i could then went thru the coil packs, misfiring on three cylinders. replaced all the plugs and the 3 coils and now im getting zero spark? checked the fuses on the side of the dash and on the battery, unplugged the fuel line after the filter and cranked it gas is pumping. just cranks and thats it, no engine light now but the traction control is lit when the key is in the on position. and before it stopped running i was getting that rotten egg/cat smell maybe the misfires were letting to much gas in their but that wouldnt affect the spark issues? crankshaft sensor maybe?

any help would be great!!

No spark to any of them, on my way home now, I read that if I try to start it and the tach doesn't move it's a good sign the crankshaft sensor is bad?
