Coil Arching

MY SON'S DODGE SHADOW IS MISSING REAL BAD. THE IGNITION COIL IS ARCHING A BLUE ARCH BETWEEN BOTH POLES AND THE PLUG WIRE CONNECTION; IS THIS A SIGN OF A BAD COIL OR WHAT ?

Please kill the caps. No need to shout.

The year and engine size of this Updated K-car would be a help .

Likely a cracked coil or a bad set of ignition wires. Change both and let us know what you have.

Joe is right, plus check the spark plug gap. If the spark plug gap is very wide sparking on the ignition coil will occur. I hope this helps. Keep us posted.
