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.

Yeah. I'm thinking maybe a blown head gasket.

White smoke not blue.


Ever tasted antifreeze?

If so it smells just like it tastes when burnt.

He's telling Flopnuts' car to drink antifreeze. Next stop is an insurance claim after driving it into an AIDS tree.

That's what I thought as soon as you said "sweet". That would'nt cause the gas smell though, would it? Correct me if I'm wrong but, I figured fouled plug or injector.

I have a 1996 Windstar van you could use to fix that old clunker.

Just tie your Lincoln to the rear bumper of my van and you can just pull the ol' piece of crap around.

A vacationing penguin is driving through Arizona when he
notices that the oil-pressure light is on.* He gets out to
look and sees oil dripping out of the motor.* He drives to
the nearest town and stops at the first gas station.* After
dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around
town.

He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in
Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the
spot.* He gets a big bowl of vanilla ice cream and sits down
to eat.* Having no hands, he makes real mess trying to eat
with his little flippers.

After finishing his ice cream, he
goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he's
found the problem.* The mechanic looks up and says, "It
looks like youīve blown a seal."

"No, no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."

usually if there is too much fuel it's going to have tons of black smoke.

Unless it's flooded so bad the fuel has filled the crank case all the way up and is forcing oil into the cylinders

I suggest getting a good all season "CarTier". Goodyear is a decent brand.

But it's spelled "tire", not "tier" my friend.

Sounds like a compression/leak down test is in order.
Quick test I like is to use my spark plug to compressor adaptor, roll each cylinder around to TDC then pump compressed air to it and listen for leaks. Itíll lose some air to the crank case due to ring end gap but if itís losing a lot itís a broken ring(s). If it starts blowing bubbles in the radiator itís a blown head gasket or cracked/warped head. If it starts blowing through the exhaust itís a burnt exhaust valve, through the intake same song different verse.
