Hello John and  welcome5
before we can attempt to tackle your problem we need to be sure what vehicle were dealing with as your mark doesn't match your year or profile picture, engine size.

Engine size and power output

Thanks for changing your details John.

Not heard of this issue on a MK3 and certainly wouldn't think changing the oil will have that effect.
Has the car been serviced recently?

My first action would be to have the diagnostics scanned, the fact it resets after a restart would suggest an engine management fault.
Maybe something simple like a faulty temperature sensor.

Might they be referring to the DPF regeneration issue whereby the engine management drastically overfuels the engine in order to raise the exhaust gas temperature to allow regeneration to occur? I've read reports of this being a known and ongoing issue, responsible for diluting the engine oil and causing the level to rise drastically in some cases, not sure if this may be related but if said oil contaminated with diesel vapour is making it's way back into the inlet tract it could be allowing uncontrolled fueling of the engine effectively?

this happenes on a Mazda 5 I had, you had 3 levels on the dip stick , oil min max and a third an inch higher, to allow for over fuelling when dpf cleaning, if the level went beyond the level it went into limp mode to allow you to get to a garage

Good point, if it is DPF regen and it's failed to complete regen I would expect a fault code logged.

Garage done all diagnostic tests , no fault showing , ford say it's an issue with certain engines , I'm not due fuel change for another 2000 miles but say it needs to be done to solve the problem , only ford have a special tool for the engine seemingly
