Is there a reputable place I can take mine in? I'm having similar problems with a 2014 ST250 and it's puffing smoke with a burnt oil smell.

I'm sure one of the pistons is damaged. It's happens with them fairly often depending on how they are tuned, if even tuned.

In terms of cost how much am I looking at to repair this? Car is out of warranty. How much would Ford cost?

Is your car modded? If not you should be under warranty. It's a 4 year 100km plan

It's not modded. Problem is I do alot of kms on the car and the warranty lapsed last month. I'm on 106 000km and I was hoping to buy the extended warranty with my December bonus. Now this happened. I need an idea of how much to budget for.
