    Not without a scope.

    If your car is misfiring and the CEL is on, could be a bad coil.  Get a scan tool and check for misfire codes.  If there are misfire codes, swap the coil on the misfiring cylinder.  Misfire transfers to the other cylinder, the coil is bad.

    The easy way to check this is to wait till it's dark and then take a spray bottle and mist your coil or coils lightly start your car and look for Sparks if you see some you have a bad coil pack

    You could test it if you had the right equipment and knew how.  But if you think it is breaking down then replace it.  They're cheap.
