SOURCE: My 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII will not start. It

Check your power to your fuel pump. Put your ear to the filler for the gas and get someone to turn on the key, do not crank.. You should here the fuel pump cut on. If not suspect pump problem. You can also take the lin loose at the fuel filter and check to see if gas comes out after key is turned on and work your way to the engine if you get gas there just follow the lines.

SOURCE: what kind of oil for 94 lincoln mark 8

I would 5w-30 non-synthetic, high mileage formula. Full synthetic will leak through old engine gaskets easier and the high mileage formula has the conditioner additive for the older gaskets.
Personally, I use Valvoline Maxlife in my car because it has over 100,000 miles on it. Works great.

A oil leak back front of the engine

Without knowing the make of your car it would be difficult to narrow down. With that said if it is a 2000-2004 Chevrolet then what you are seeing may not necessarily be oil. Check the power steering fluid. If it is low first top it up. From the power steering there is a low pressure line, this line runs down, along the passenger side frame and across the radiator and back again. This is to help cool the fluid. Just behind the passenger tire you will notice a plastic plate. This plate is to help keep debris out of the pulley area. This plate rubs against the power steering line wearing it down through time creating a very small pin hole. This hole will allow fluid to leak while sitting and blow out will driving. Chevrolet power steering fluid looks a lot like oil especially after an oil change. If it is not your power steering then you are looking at 1 or 2 things...(1) oil pan gasket or (2) lower intake manifold gasket both are about $600 to repair. The parts are not that expensive but the labor is about 3-4 hours. I don't recommend changing either if you are not an experience mechanic. The power steering line is relatively an easy fix. Simply cut the line just before it is worn and cut the return just underneath. You will need 4 small claims and rubber hose (suitable for power steering). I suggest 4 but 2 will do (I prefer double clamping) clamp the house to the fresh cut and done. Make sure the house doesn't touch the belt (I suggest tie downs and tire it the frame).

Determine if it is the bolts or gasket on a oil filter housing leaking oil from it on a 1993 lincoln mark 8

Surely if you clean the area & start the car,
you will see the leaking area

No reason the oil filter gasket would leak
so remove the adapter & replace any gasket there

How to determine whether its the gasket or the bolts on the oil filter housing on a 1993 lincoln mark 8

Which ever is the leak you will have to take the housing off to fix it. Probably loose bolts are allowing the gasket to leak. Make sure the oil filter is not loose. or overtight affecting the rubber seal

Oil coming out from the middle of my 316 se 2002 plate

Common oil leaks on a 3 series are:
1) Power steering hoses. If you have not yet replaced any power steering hoses on a 2002 I can almost promise you that one or more of them are leaking.
2) Valve cover gasket. Same comment as above. This tends to leak on the exhaust manifold side and stink like burned plastic as the synthetic oil burns on the manifold.
3) Oil line to the VANOS.
4) Oil filter housing.
Oil from any of these leaks will tend to move rearward as it makes its way to the ground.

That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)

When power steering hose replacement is required, follow these steps:
  1. With the engine stopped, remove the return hose at the power steering gear, and allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. On some cars, the vehicle must be lifted on a hoist to replace the power steering hoses.
  2. Loosen and remove all hose fittings from the pump and steering gear.
  3. Remove all hose-to-chassis clips.
  4. Remove the hoses from the chassis, and cap the pump and steering fittings.
  5. If O-rings are used on the hose ends, install new O-rings. TRW steering gear cylinder lines have gaskets that are serviced as a unit. The old gasket must be pried out of the fittings in the housing before the new lines and gaskets are installed. Lubricate O-rings with power steering fluid.
  6. Reverse steps 1 through 4 to install the power steering hoses. Tighten all fittings to the manufacturer's specified torque. Be sure all hose-to-chassis clips are in place. Do not position hoses where they rub on other components.
  7. Fill the pump reservoir to the full mark with the manufacturer's recommended fluid. Bleed air from the power steering system. Check the fluid level in the reservoir and add fluid as required.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1997 lincoln mark 8?

thermostat is located in the radiator to block hose. if you look directly under the power steering reservoir you should see it.
The thermostat has 3 hoses running from it. 2 are approx. 1.5" in dia and 1 is approx .750" in dia. The .750" hose leads up to the coolant reservoir. and yes it is under the power steering reservoir
