LINCOLN TOWN CAR SMOKE PROBLEM

1998 Lincoln Town Car • 223,000 miles

Looking at this vehicle to possibly buy, am leary \of grayish smoke coming from tailpipe does not burn black or blue, indicating oil or gas, not is it white, which would indicate a coolant issue. ANy ideas? Thanks. Smoke comes out steady and more heavily when accelarator is stepped on. No distinct odors. Outdoor temp is in the 50deg range.

High mileage for the motor. Could be oil. Be ready to put money into repairing the motor.

I think I would walk on this one and keep looking
