I Have An Oil Leak On My 88 Lincoln Town Car. Somewhere From Behind Or Below The Dip Stick. It Is Smoking From There As Well Because I Think The Oil Is Burning Off The Manifold When It Leaks. How Did I Fix It? Where Do I Start?

First is finding where it is actually leaking. Clean the area real well with some engine cleaner and watch where the oil is leaking from. I suspect the valve cover gaskets are shot. Purchase some new gaskets and remove the upper intake to get to the valve covers. Torque them evenly as you don't want to over tighten. You'll have some vacuum hoses to remove as well, careful removing, and replace if cracked.
