2013 FX4 5.0 Blue Smoke/Oil Consumption
I purchased a 2013 FX4 5.0 in April. I was somewhat irresponsible and honestly I didn't check the oil before the first change. I had it changed at 2900 miles when I had to take it in for a warranty job on a squeak in the door. I now have 3900 miles on it, so 1000 since the very first oil change. I don't drive it very often, as I have an older 4x4 s-10 I use on the farm daily and the new truck stays in the garage a lot.
This morning, the new truck was actually outside overnight and it got pretty cold here last night, near 20 degrees. I was gonna move the new truck in the garage, so I looked out the window and started it with the remote start. What I saw next was very disturbing. When the truck started, I saw a decent sized cloud of blue smoke come out of the exhaust immediately upon startup. Then nothing came out, followed by steam a short time later. Immediately I was pissed, wanting to know why my brand new $45,000 truck is burning oil. I shut the truck off and let it sit for about an hour, then I went out and checked the oil. I saw that the oil level was about halfway between the full and add marks. Now I can't be certain that the dealer made sure it was completely full when they changed the oil, but I'm assuming they did. Can anyone explain this? Why in the world would my brand new truck be smoking blue and potentially burning oil???
I did leave the truck outside the rest of the afternoon and started it again about 4 hours after the blue smoke incident. This time I saw no blue smoke at all come out of the exhaust. I read some posts on here where people with the 2011's had some issues and said that once they got around 10k miles the oil consumption started. But I find the fact that I paid $45k for a truck to burn oil.
Any help, advice, or experiences would be greatly appreciated!
