Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car
You need to determine where the leak is coming from. Once the source is determined, you can get an idea on the cost to fix the leak. This could be minimal (improperly installed drain plug or oil filter-loose-oil pan bolts need tightening) or major (rear main engine seal), requiring a lot of labor to fix. The danger is that if the oil level drops too low, your engine won't be lubricated properly, and could result in engine damage or failure. So keep checking on a regular basis until the leak is fixed, keep the level up (never let it fall to needing more than 1 quart of oil at any time). The other reason to fix it, is the damage caused to the environment by oil-a small amount of oil can pollute a large amount of water. You need to do a visual inspection under the car, which requires raising the car and supporting it to make it safe to go underneath the car. Oil will most likely be all over, due to it blowing back over the underside of the car while driving. The best way to determine where the leak is would be to wipe down wet areas with a rag, start the car, let it run for a while, check for evidence of leaks. Good luck.
