I believe the problem is something called an Idle Control Valve. Top rear of engine. It is connected by two 3/8 bolts and one wire. It is connected to a larger exhaust breather type hose that projects into the top of the engine manifold. You will find this device sticking up dead center at the back of the engine. It is silver in color and looks like two pie pans stuck together about 2 1/4 in in diameter. Good Luck its and easy fix.

I took it to a mechanic two two days ago but they said nothing wrong as it didn't have "Check the Engine" light. They just cleaned the battery area and told me to wait and see. Well, itís been fine so far but the problem happens only once a two week. I will keep both replies for next time. (I hope it won't happyen but...)
Thank you so much for your input!!!!

that is how my oil leaks started the smoke at idle came from a small oil leak leaking onto the engine. eventually it turned into everything leaking.

What color is the smoke coming out the exhaust? White or light gray is good, but dark smoke indicates a rich fuel mixture. Often replacing the Barametric Manifold Air Pressure Sensor will correct the rich fuel problem.
Your engine is completely changed from the power plant in the 90 Lincoln.

The 302 c.i. engine has an oil pressure sending unit easy to get to. Usually the neoprene seal cracks with age and enables oil to escape. An easy fix & not expensive.
