Have you checked the turbo at all?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No not sure how
Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago
Reach in and try to move the impeller. Feel for play in any direction. It should have virtually no movement and if it does it will burn through oil with a quickness which would explain your missing oil and the smoke.

I have a tuner in it and I just passed a car got into the gas and there was a lot of black smoke bout 10 miles down the road it shut down
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Would that stop it from starting? I am going out to check turbo now
Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago
Yeah it can. And does your tuner read codes? If so what codes are in it right now?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Tuner don't give codes
Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago
OK. Well I would start by checking for play in the turbo then.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I checked the turbo it has lots of play
Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago
Then you have found your immediate issue. Either get it rebuilt or replace it with a new or reman unit and recheck. Chances are thats all you got going on but theres always the possibilty that theres more than one problem keeping it from starting. That will be where your oil is going for sure and if there was no previous issues thats probably responsible for the no start as well

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
