A week ago i dropped my truck off at the ford dealership for an oil change. It hasnt run right since I got it back. Anyone have any ideas of what might cause these issues?

Dropped the truck off at Quick Lane. Asked for an oil change and the check engine light to be evaluated. After evaluation it was deemed the check engine light was caused by bad glow plug in Cylinder 1. Agreed to leave the truck and pick it up either later Friday night or on Saturday morning.
Received a phone call at 4:52 PM saying the truck was ready to be picked up.
Received another phone call at 5:21 PM saying the truck did not run properly and acted as if it was vapor locked. No resolution could be reached until Monday.

Received a phone call at 12:57 PM saying the truck was fixed and the issue was that the oil lines to the injector lines had air in them. He explained that the injectors in that engine were run off oil pressure and air in the lines caused the truck not to run. Resolution was to charge batteries and purge air from lines.
Paid Invoice for a total of $220.08.
Drove the truck after picking it up. Seemed to lack power.
Spoke with service manager later in the afternoon. Agreed to look at the truck on Tuesday morning.

Dropped the truck off around 8 AM. Around 9:30 AM I spoke with Jim who assured me nothing was wrong with the truck. Everything checked out fine.
Had a conversation with Jim and expressed my concern that the truck was run without oil on Friday, causing the air in the lines and I was concerned about damage that may have been caused by the truck being run without oil. He told me it was very possible that is how the truck was run without oil in it, causing the air in the injector oil lines. He also said there were fail safe features on that truck that it would die immediately if there was a lack of oil pressure.

Went to start the truck around 10:30 AM. Truck started then immediately died 2 consecutive times. On the third attempt to start it the truck ran extremely rough. After idling for 5 mins I went to drive the truck and it was still running choppy. As the engine temp climbed it ran smoother.
When it initially fired up the truck smoked like crazy
Attempted to make contact with service manager that afternoon but nobody was there due to weather.

Started the truck around 1:30 PM. Engine ran extremely rough for about 5 mins. After that it ran choppy as I started to drive. Started to run smoother as the engine temp climbed.
Initially the truck smoked like crazy
Spoke with the service manager Friday afternoon. Told him the issues I was experiencing and made an appointment to drop the truck off on Monday January 21, 2013 for further evaluation.
In conversation he continued to tell me that even though the truck was run without oil in it, the fail safe system wouldn’t have allowed it to run long enough to do damage. I call bull**** on that.
