I have a 1998 Lincoln Town Car which has been stretched into a 10 passenger limo.
It has 182,000 miles on the clock and is running rough.
It is also using quite a lot of oil. I'm putting in a quart every 200-300 miles. I'm pretty sure this is due to a leak but not certain.
I have changed the plugs and as I'm not getting an engine fault code coming up, I did a compression check.
6 of the cylinders were in the range of 145 - 165 PSI but on the other 2 one was 90 PSI and one was 45 PSI.
I don't see any smoke coming out of the exhaust and I don't see any evidence of water in the oil. I do get a knocking sound from the engine when the oil is getting a little low.
What is likely to be wrong and how difficult is it going to be to fix?
have the same problem?
