Some 2016-2017 Ford F-150 trucks equipped with a 2.7L gasoline turbocharged direct injection (GTDI) engine and built on April 1, 2016, through Jan. 1, 2017, may exhibit white or blue smoke from the exhaust, rough idle in neutral or park at normal operating temperature or after a hot restart.

The MIL may be on, with DTCs P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0316, P0524 and/or P06DD with excessive oil consumption.

Connect a scan tool to the DLC. If P0524 and/or P06DD are not stored in the PCM, replace the cylinder heads. If these DTCs are stored, check engine oil, level. If oil level is not within MIN/MAX range, add oil to correct. If level is within the MIN/MAX range, run the engine to operating temperature and monitor oil pressure. If oil pressure is within specification, replace the cylinder heads.

If oil pressure is not within spec, replace the long block assembly.
