The procedure is in the Haynes. The coil is inside the distributor on the V6. The Haynes tells you which terminals to connect your ohmmeter to. This will tell you if the primary and secondary resistances are within spec.

Usually when the coil goes bad, you have weak spark. You'd have hard starting when cold. Also, it could cause the car to cut out if the coil overheated and broke down. The car would cut out and would restart later.
