We were going to the movies as a family when even the kids said what's that smell? A fairly strong oil smell was coming from the engine compartment. It was not as noticeable when cold but after warm up present after accelerating it was stronger. It is pretty consistent but milder during cruise.

Update from Mar 11, 2017: I recently took the vehicle in for the oil smell,it got more consistent and a Ford Master Mechanic at Wickstrom Ford found that a turbo charger vent line was never connected at the factory causing not only the smell but also the puffing sounds coming from the engine compartment.The service advisor said it would take a little time to burn off the solvents and remaining oil.The noise coming from the engine compartment has been dramatically reduced.
