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.

Try running some fuel additives. STP or BG... Something like that.
Get a compression test too. It could be just some fouled plugs or something simple but it sounds to me like the old girl might need some serious work.

I don't think that is what he meant by having/providing "tranny" work....

If it's got coil packs I'm guessing it's early 2000s. 4.6l?

Serious question. Are you thinking antifreeze? I'm a decent shade tree mechanic and just curious what sweet smoke points to
