Default Oil patch below Ignition Coil

Hi Fellow BHPians,

This morning while getting CNG filled in my car (WagonR - 2003, 83K on ODO), I observed a small oil patch below one of the ignition coils. I checked whether the cap from where the engine oil is filled is loose and it was intact. I am pretty sure that the oil spill was not from there.

I haven't observed this behaviour ever before.

My query is:
Is this something which I can live with or is this the signal of something big coming .

If I visit M.A.S.S. for a check, what exactly should I ask them to do/look for ?

Does WagonR have more than one ignition coils? AFAIK, it is fitted with DDLI and that is one single integrated unit.

Yes, there are two ignition coils - each attached to a couple of spark plugs.

I am sure as I have recently got one of the ignition coils replaced. The patch is visible below the other coil quite near to oil filler cap.

Exclamation Ignition Coil on Fusion Replaced...

Ignition coil is not such a part that has some oil or replaceable parts. If it becomes useless then its completely replaced. If there is some slight problem then the car will vibrate as my car used to do from 2 yrs. And when one of the chambers stoped proper current flow then engine started missing in one of the cylinders. Its not repairable, it doesnt consist of many small parts and it is to be changed when shorted. what you can do is clean the oil. And mostly coils get destroyed due to water splashes when hot.

You might need an O-ring/oil seal at the coil replaced.
