Oil in air cleaner problem

Someone is giving me a ford or mercury car.

About a 1992 +/-.

Body/interior good shape..it's been sitting for 1.5 years. He said it was running fine when parked BUT......

It started smoking, and he found about 1/4 inch of oil in the air cleaner.

Is this a PCV/emission type problem, or is it more serious.

It is a 6 cyl.

Sorry about the lack of facts...but I just saw the car briefly yesterday, and am headed over to take a closer look today.

Thanks for your help and ideas..

It sounds like a PCV problem to me. I'd make sure the lines are clear and see how that works. It may have a serious blowby problem....

Thanks for the reply. That is my thought too, but ??????????????

I cranked it over today, couldn't get it started even with starting fluid.

Pulled plugs....YUCK! about 3" gap and 2 were brown, 2 were black.......

Next step......clean plugs & try again.....

I jumped the car THROUGH the original battery, which is DEAD!.

I was told this will decrease spark to plugs...it fired on about 1-2 plugs but would not start......

It's a 4 cyl, auto with all electric windows/seat/locks etc, so it is a car worth saving, I think!

Any oother thoughts, or am I on the right path?

THANKS.

Well if the plugs are that bad...

I would get new plugs, new wires for SURE, a distributor cap & rotor (if it has it..I think it does you didnt mention a model/make/year/engine) Check to see if it has fire, if not move up to the coil, and if it still does not work maybe a distributor.

I would for sure do the plugs wires, cap & rotor.

It may not fire up due to a clogged fuel filter and bad fuel. If the above dosent work, drop the tank, clean it out and put fresh fuel in it--about 3 gallons, and a new sock on the fuel pump.

keep us updated.

Assuming it's not over filled w/ oil, then it sounds like the rings are gone. Let it run with the oil fill cap removed, if it's puffin' smoke out of there, the rings are likely worn out. Check for operational PCV valve also.

Also is DOES NOT matter what the battery is/was is you jump the car it would draw off the other car and turn over.

If it sat for a year and a half it's going to cost you more in time and parts than the car is worth. Tell them thanks but no thanks.
