My mother has a 1994 lincoln town car signature series with 102,000 miles on it. She has owned the car for almost a year and put approx.10k of the miles on it. We have serviced it well and the car is in excellent shape. In the past week she has noticed smoke coming from the exhaust mainly after the car has been driven and has idled for a period such as in a drive through window or at a long light. She does't notice any at start up or just regular driving. Does this sound like the valve spring guide seals leaking oil into the combustion chamber to you? We're hoping it's not the piston rings. If you don't believe this is the problem would you please offer some suggestions. We want to fix the problem but she is on social sec. And I am disabled so we need to get an idea of the kind of money she'll need to come up with. Thanks Sincerely, M. Smith
have the same problem?
