2005 Lincoln LS 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 51000 miles
I was driving my mother in laws Lincoln LS to get a tire patched, it had been sitting for about 16 days, she had just had the oil changed before she left, its gone about 50 miles since then. When I drove the car, about 5 tenths of a mile, I noticed a strong smell more so like rubber than oil, and smoke coming through the vents. I opened the hood and there was a fair amount of smoke coming from down near the AC compressor area of the engine well. I checked the oil level and it looked fine, and there are no signs of overheating though the coolant in the reserve well is slightly low. There was no check engine light on. I drove it home and noticed the smell again, slightly less strong this time, but did not see any smoke. Could it just be oil burn off from sitting still for 2 and a half weeks?
have the same problem?
