I have a 1995 Lincoln Town Car that is starting to smoke a bit. The inside of the left tailpipe is chalky feeling and black (not very). The inside of the right side is chalky, but with just a hint of stickiness. The smell of the smoke is like a fuel fume. Everyone says it smells like fuel smoke rather than oil smoke, but these are not mechanics.

How is the car running? Is the engine light on? Mil on car?

Well, the smoke isn't black, I do know. Maybe kind of a bluish-white? The car runs great, but the "check engine" light is on. It has 85k miles.

Blue is oil burning. You should check the PVC valve then have a cylinder leak down test done. How does the engine oil look? How much oil do you add between oil changes.

I just checked the oil, and it looks very clean; however, it does look about half a quart low. It has been about 1200 miles since my last change.
