Hi there, I have a 2004 Lincoln Aciator with a 4.6l V8, I have a massive oil leak from the rear of the engine. The oil is on top of the transmission, and it sprays down the exhaust. It only leaks oil while its under a load as in while I'm driving. I can start the car up and let it idle for hours and there's no leak, but as soon as I start driving and get up to speeds it leaks a lot, so much that there's a steady cloudy of smoke from it burning off on the exhaust. What could be the root of the problem?

You need to get this fixed immediately, so not to lose the truck due to fire. It could be the oil pressure switch/adapter or line something like that. It may even be a transmission line depending on which side it's on.
