My friend has a lincoln ls 01 V6. His smoked from two problems 1) was a leaking valve cover gasket and 2) the coil/sparkplug hole gaskets that make the seal thru the valve cover. These all come in a set for both sides of the motor. You should get a good engine degreaser to clean it all up after you do the repairs.If you have more questions starnesjd69@hotmail.com
