1. Get a Oasis report from ford this will tell you if it is a problem child any repairs by ford.
2. Check for white stuff around the degasing tank if you see any even around the battery it is pucking coolant (may be HG, EGR cooler, oil cooler) see if they will give him so warranty look for leaks around the back of the motor if so may be the bed plate. Look for any white smoke at start up may be a bad EGR cooler, does it idle smooth take it out and see what kind of boost it makes norm around 24-25lbs at WOT run it don't just drive it
