Check for injector pulse with a noid light and check the fuel pressure with a gauge. Hearing it kick on means nothing. Neither does being new. I've seen some new ones bad out of the box. Orange spark isn't that great either. Should be bluish white and able to jump about 1- 1 1/2 inches from the coil to a test light.

is this the 3.0L or 4.0L? Orange spark isn't good. As Nick stated you need to have a hotter spark.

You already know you have at least one broken ground. Try taking a jumper cable to a shiny piece of the engine and the other end to battery ground. See if this improves your issue. If it does you simply need to make a ground cable from the block to the battery.

Take a long wire and strip both end run one from da batt to the +side of the ignition coil with the fitting and c provided that it will begin then provided that it does u can put that wire to a fuse that has power when u turn on the key.

Still need to know the engine size.

You can test power to the coil(s) with a volt meter back probed into the coil('s) connector on the feed circuit with the key on and the meter grounded to the battery. You should have close to battery voltage. No need to run jumper wires and possibly cause problems.
