If the smoke coming out (the back of the car exhaust) is dark grey...then you have a oil burning problem..this will cause your oil to be low sometimes quickly...if it is leaking out, sometimes oil leaks out on to exhaust under the hood, and can burn making smoke under the hood.. If the smoke is more white, then you have a head gasket problem. If you need to jump start your car, maybe you should drive to a national chain of auto parts store...they test batteries free...and test alternators free too...If you ran too low on oil, you might have a serious engine problem like a seized or nearly seized bearing, worn rings, or nearly seized motor.

What makes a burn oil smell on a 99 Mercury Villager


Do you have blue smoke coming out of the exhaust. This would mean that you are burning the oil. Also check for any oil on the engine especially around valve cover

I changed the oil sensor on my 1997 mercury villager van, and it is still leaking oil. The oil lite never has come on and I checked oil last night and it was one quart low. Could the gasket on the oil...


The oil is leaking from wherever you see oil on the engine. Sometimes there can be to much oil covering the engine and it needs to be degreased. A dye can also be added to the oil that will illuminate when a dye light is used to help track down a leak. If the oil pressure switch you removed wasn't wet with oil or leaking than it wasn't bad.

It could be anything from the valve cover gaskets, cam seals, front crank seal, oil pan gasket, rear main seal or head gaskets.

Possible oil leak


Sounds like you may have a valve cover leaking and the oil is dripping down on the manifold., burning off when going down the road. When you drive the air will blow this oil everywhere making it look like it 's coming from different places. The oil has built up around the frame or bottom of engine and that's why you're getting leaks on the ground. You can replace this yourself, no special tools. But be sure to keep a check on the oil level.
