"He thinks it could be a bad coil"??
He don;t have a scanner to read the codes? Mechanics that think what is wrong are not all bad, (don;t take it wrong), become great friends with the parts store(s). Not to mention cost Customers money thinking it could be this part or that part.
Unless this guy is your brother, brother n law, or cousin, may be worth stopping into Nappa & have them scan it for you if your light is on, (should be if coil gone).
If skipping I would think it was electrical, being free advice we can "think".
Spitting & sputtering I would think fuel, fuel filter, fuel pump if sputtering when under loads, missing, I would think plugs, coils or wires.
What another member offered above could also be the issue seeing how you did remove the cats. The one who removed the cats should have installed a universal o/2 to ensure no later issues.
If the one who removed your cats is the same one who thinks it is now your coil, (and just may be, hard telling not hearing the motor), but if not & suggest you buy more parts to "try", mention the cats to him & the universal o/2, but I still would stop by Nappa and scan codes if you have your light on.
Let us know k? And good luck!
