Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi. Does the vehicle have any other concerns like excessive oil consumption or blue smoke out the exhaust?
It is more common to have the valve cover leak and cause oil to be where the sensor is.
Have you checked the oil level?
How did it get overfilled? Perhaps the piston rings became saturated with oil and now the compression ring(s) are stuck getting you a lot of pressure in crankcase. Dont see how else pressure would be there. Sounds like you have excessive blow by.
Yes I am. I have checked the shop manual and they do not say that you can do a compression check on the 2.5L hybrid because it has a different cycle called atkinson cycle engine which allows for low compression so the engine can start easier when switching to hybrid and gas.
So I doubt the rings are stuck. I wonder if taking the plugs out and pulling the injector connectors and cranking it for a while may dry out the cylinders. Perhaps the walls are just really washed with oil.
I am just checking in and will be back online after 8pm.
