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.

#494 of 1117 Driver's Side Window on 92 Lincoln Town Car
Oct 15, 2006 (1:47 pm)
On my 92 92 Lincoln Town Car, my drivers side window had stopped working altogether.
I recently had a new window motor installed.
Now my problem is, that it works just fine at times, while at other times, either works very slowly in up or down, or not at all.
When it is working at times, the window will stop working in attempting to roll it up.
Then if I wait awhile, it will start to roll up again.
Someone mentioned, that Relay maybe Bad.
My question is, does anyone know the location of the window relay?
#495 of 1117 Electrical Shortage

I have a 1990 Lincoln TC and I have a short somewhere that I cannot locate. I pulled into an unfamiliar drive way yesterday and bottomed out pretty hard. Nothing was damaged, however, when I tried to use my turn signal just minutes later it would not flash; it would just turn on... Also, when I turned on the signal the radio would turn off. When I hit the brakes the radio would turn off. Last night it rained very hard and I was again reminded of my electrical short by how rough my car was running. This morning is was still raining and she didn't start very smooth, but I figured she would be fine. Well, on my way to work I turned on my interior light, which was already dim, and the entire cluster went black. I pulled over because I wasn't even sure if my brake lights were working. When I pulled over I realized that my car wasn't running. Any idea where my short could be located???

I am really really frustrated! I replaced the motor on my 1995 TC 2 months ago and haven't driven it very much as we were on holiday for 6 weeks. When I picked the car up from the shop and drove it home it just didn't feel right. The gear change lever was sooooo tight and difficult to move and when driving it was a hard change from first to second and second to third. Also there was hesitation when accelerating. I went back to the mechanic and told him about this. He told me the cable from the shifter probably needed to be replaced as sometimes that happens and it was just coincidence it happened now. However we returned from holidays and yesterday on my way home there was this awful noise accompanied by clouds of smoke from the back of the car! Needless to say I stopped pretty quick called the mechanic and had the car towed. He now tells me that there was a leak in the transmission and all the oil leaked out and I probably need to replace the pump and a bunch of other stuff. I have a bit of a problem with this as a month before the motor was replaced I had the yearly tranny check done and everything was all good. My question here is... when the motor was replaced is it possible that the tranny was not fitted properly which has caused the oil to leak out? Am I being given a snow job to hide a mistake? I have no problems with the transmission prior to this. HELP!!!!
