In the last 30 days I changed the coil of my Altezza (4-cylinder beems engine) twice, I'm desperate because I do not know what could be causing this coil burning ... Someone help me please!

Was it the same coil packing up?

Did you change the plugs at the same time?

Was there any oil at the bottom of the plug tube?

Hi xnickx,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, was the same coil.

I didn't change the plugs.

It has some oil yes, but very little.

Would recommend definitely changing the plugs, even if it is to a fresh set of Copper plugs.
The oil will not be helping at all, best to replace the cam cover gasket if it is on plug 1 or 4, if it is plug 2 or 3 they do run their own seal
