OIL BURNING

I recently had my IDM, PCM, and the injector o-ring kit installed and an oil change by the dealer. It has been roughly 3500 miles since and the truck shut down today. When I checked the oil there was barely a trace. Could someone please explain where 15 quarts of oil have gone with no traces in my driveway. Thank You

into your fuel system. pull your fuel filter and see if it has black sludge/oil on it.....if it does..........re ring your injectors.

O.K. I didn't do the rings the first time a Ford dealer did them. I will take it back to them I guess

I haven't gotten a chance to look at that yet. We are having torrential downpours now and i really don't want to open the fuel filter up. That and I would get drenched.

Would the filter collect all the sludge? My mechanic pull the drain on the fuel filter bowl and he said that the fuel look pretty clear.
