Some 2016-2017 Ford F-150 trucks equipped with a 2.7L 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 and DTCs P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0316, P0524 and/or P06DD. Excessive oil consumption may be evident as well (possibly one quart in less than 3,000 miles).

If DTCs P0524 and/or P06DD are not stored, replace the cylinder heads. If those DTCs are stored, add engine oil as needed and run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature. If oil pressure is within specification, replace the cylinder heads. If not within spec, replace the long block engine assembly.
