The oil in the coil is not dissipating the heat. Probably time for a replacement.

Did that replaced the coil but still no spark. There is no spark at all nt even by spark plugs. Now what i wanna know is it possible if the sparkplugs are damaged wont give spark to the coil?

It's not likely that all the spark plugs went bad at the same time. Check back from the coil. If it's not getting power then trace it back from there.

This is a Mazda base Bantam with B6 EFI engine. It possibly has a solid state coil. Fit an oil filled coil . The engine was possibly washed while hot and caused the solid state coil to crack. Also on these engines , if the spark plug resistance is low , it will cause a spark to jump between the coil tower and one of the other terminals of the coil
