Question about 1991 Lincoln Continental
Car quit on side of road apparently hot , car was just fully serviced and when I got to it 2 days later I checked the oil for anti-freeze and saw 3 tiny droplets onthe distick, oil looked and smelled burnt, but the lower radiator hose was loose and had sprayed coolant all over that side of the engine including the oil filler cap ( might be were coolant came from on dipstick? Tried the engine and it fired , but it had a solid loud tapping sound which made me think pushrod. Now I'm old school ( 69 HEMI ROADRUNNER CONVERTIBLE complete with PISTOL GRIP HURST 4 GEAR) Its my daughters third car ( all were in great condition) but she has the worst luck (I guess) when it comes to cars. I know nothing about V^ engines and less about electronics. Can I do a quick fix and replace the pushrod or pushrods and get by for a little longer while I fix the second car she let get hot and can you tell me what I need to do or know about fixing this problem? ( the car not the daughter) thanx in advance, Bert
Try changing the oil in the car with 10w-40 and 1 bottle of Lucas Oil Stabilizer. The oil may be thinned out with the water causing it not to do it's job lubricating. Just substitute 1 quart of oil with the Lucas. If it doesn't change anything, remove the valve covers and check the pushrods for straightness. On that engine, the rockers are pedestal mount so you don't have to worry about setting valve lash. Just tighten them and go. I'm old school too. My daily driver is a 68 Mustang with a 331 stroker, competition prepped reverse pattern C-4 trans., rear gears are 4.11's, goes 11.81 @ 114mph., 1.71 60ft's.
