Head gasket or white smoke could be trans fluid if it could get into engine from a trans vacuum line if there is such on a 1999.

SOURCE: engine blowing oil from oil filler cap

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

I've a 1999 mercury stable 3.0 double over head cam it got hot and cut off when cooled off chanked it up and blowing white smoke it don't seemingly to have water in the oil does that mean I have a cracked...


If your engine has overheated then more than likely you have a blown head gasket.
1. have compression checked for each cylinder.
if a cylinder shows low compression 20 lbs less than the others then you have a gasket/head job needing repaired.
2. if there is water in the oil. your engine has a blown head gasket.

aluminum heads will need to be checked at a machine shop for warpped head...and all head bolts will need replaced.

White smoke in exhaust 1999 lincoln after replacing intake manifold


Sounds like antifreeze leaking in to me. Ports at rear of intake are trick and easy to get that gasket mis-aligned. Hate to say it but when you take the intake back off I imagine the culprit will be obvious. Only other thing is that the intake wsa fine and you actually had a blown head gasket.

1999 Mercury Sable cooling system


does it blow out white smoke?  If so it might be a head gasket issue.  I know mercury sables were infamous for head gaskets.
