you probably have a broken piston ring that is supposed to keep the oil out of the cylinder bore, the oil goes through and is burned with the gas.

What Shady Mechani pointed out could cause it and the tell tale sign would be a blueish tint to your exhaust fumes. Another reason could be a dirty oil filter, a PCV valve that needs to be replaced, and last but not least slug build up in the engine. The last will require an engine flush. A good one would be Auto-Rx.

All I can do is give you starting prices. It really just depends on how you configure the truck. The F-150 starts at $21,850. The F-250 starts at $28,500. The F-350 starts at $28,983. The F-450 starts at $46,500. The F-450 has such a high starting cost because it comes standard with the crew cab, long bed, 4WD, and the diesel engine.

Guy Montag likes his job, he enjoys burning books and the smell of kerosene, but yet he starts to realize the hate he has for his job.
