Not too surprising the transistor id heating up. A tesla coil needs high frequency ac on the primary coil and you are using dc so the load on the transistor is only the resistance of 3 turns of wire. You need an oscillator of some sort to generate the high frequency ac

What is an oscillator ? What can i do ?

Take a look at Wickipedia under "Tesla Coil". It has quite a bit to say on the subject
