Car Problems: 1998 Lincoln Town Car Cartier
 
Weird. I've done quite a bit of work to this car. Alternator, both oxygen sensors, all 8 coil caps, and more. I have the NASCAR motor oil in it, and try and take really good care of it, but it's just coming apart at the seams it seems.

Car is losing power accelerating. Loses power going up hill, and I can floor it, it won't shift and get up and go. VERY strong smell of gasoline, and tonight started getting a lot of blue smoke. Don't think getting a code is going to work on this one. Any idears? TIA.

A Stevie Ray Vaughn funeral may be in the offing for this car.

Nah. Cars are known for going 400-500k and they are cheap and easy to work on.
