"Seem to be" is a red flag for me, it's something that needs to be tested to a firm conclusion, yes or no.

There are tools to test for spark, yet the simplest is to take the plugs out then connect them to their wires & lay them on a grounded metal surface & crank the engine (helper needed) so you can look for the spark at the plugs.

The valve cover is NOT grounded (supported by rubber gaskets) so find another handy spot!

Jumper cables are great for this, though car size are a bit unwieldy....

Cheers!
