Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Smokes badly, lost horsepower, backfires, and oil is leaking

My car lost alot of its spunk. I changed the oil and noticed that oil was on 2 of my spark plugs. The car won't reach 50mph without sputting and then backfiring. It sometimes sounds like it's about to shut off. The dealer said that I need a new engine but I believe they're just trying to get over on me.
