    Default Regarding Ignition coil of alto 660cc

    Hello

    I have suzuki alto 660cc. It has bottle type ignition coil. When it became weak i replaced it with BOSCH ignition coil. The bosch ignition coil working well for about 4 months, but I become very hot even u cannot touch it for more than a few second. Is it normal for the ignition coil to become hot?

    Please help me. Thanks in advance.

    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Becuase there is a short circuit in coil's winding,causing excessive heat, and it can be failed at any time.
    Normally, every coil gets heated up while working,but it is not so hot that can not be touched.

    I did a quick search on google, 'dwell angle' seems to be case (it could be), now you do your research, check out what dwell angle exactly is, and then relate to your situation to find out what exactly is happening. It may be a BAD coil or it wouldn't be a surprise if the coil is fine..

    It may be possible that this coil is not match to ur ignition system.
    Also check the spark plug leads and the gap of spark pulg according to specification.
    Also check the coil connection.

    @themaster,
    Electric parts can faild without any warning and this 4 months old coil of yours is no exception. Since your car has a history of coil failures / problems, you may want proper diognosis. Did you replace the resistance while changing the coil? if you didnt, that may be the problem, you would also need to check the the ignition system, leads, capacitor, points etc. Remeber there is no warranty on electrical parts - because a day old coil can fail leave alone a 4 months old. you may want to borrow another coil from your mechanic for a test drive that will tell everything
    Matchles G3L 1941, Triumph TRW 1951, Matchless G3LS 1952, Triumph T 100S 1968, Matchless G2 1958, BSA B-31 1952.......... I am insane!

    Ignition coils come with an inbuilt resistance or external resistance.. (white in colour). The resistance gets extensively heat up, this is normal. May be coil you are using has internal resistance and the heat you are getting is from that. Then, at times coils are oil filled to keep them cool .. the coil circuits remains dipped in oil for better conductivity, less sparking and cooling. May be you fitted coil at some odd angle and its circuit is not fully dipped in oil, causing it to get heated. Lastly there is no need to replace a coil with an expensive one its function is quite simple and as long as the spark is good you may next time replace it with a std suzuki mehran coil.

    Do get it checked from an electrician .. though it seems ok to me .. try a normal electrician this time with good reputation, instead of the expensive company repairs.

    Best of luck
