Yellow spark is no good. You want to see a healthy whiteish-blue spark that snaps audibly.
When I was cranking I heard a loud snap inside the car. I just need to see for myself cause then when I asked them was it a white or a whiteish blue color they then werent sure if it was really yellow but they said yellowish white to begin with.

I will go with that till I see first hand myself what color. Might be tomorrow after work as I got home too late tonight to mess with it.
