Question about 2005 Ford Focus
I have cleaned the egr and it looked if there was moisture in the intake.not blowing white smoke out ex.
Sounds like a head gasket leak on the intake side or intake gasket. Your boost is leaking out and coolant is leaking into the cylinder. Get a bulletproof kit. It is well worth the money

I can't comment on the mechanics skill level, but I'll tell you that you will usually find better technicians at commercial dealerships than you will find at a car store, simply because they see the volume and have more experience.
The glow plugs and injectors are removed during removal of the head(s) if the job is being done correctly. The glow plugs should be inspected and the injectors will get new o-rings... so if there were no problems with the injectors and glow-plugs prior to the repair, there shouldn't be afterwards.
Oil contamination is not common after headgasket leakage, as combustion pressure leaks into the cooling system, not coolant leaking into the engine as can happen on gasoline engines. And there are drains in the cylinder block that can (should) be removed prior to removing the cylinder heads that will prevent coolant from the water jackets from entering the oil galleries when the head is removed... but the oil should be changed after the repair, so any coolant that gets into the oil will be drained.
Cab removal is usually at the preference of the technicain. I don't remove them, but most do. I, like you, fear for noise and vibration and fit issues associated with doing it that way, and do not find it difficult to remove cylinder heads with the body in place.
The only thing that I can recommend to keep it from happening again, is not running a tuner or programmer(not saying that you are)... and make sure you are changing your coolant at the recommended intervals... other than that, you are at the mercy of the headbolts. Most members here will recommend installing head-studs. Your dealer may do it if you supply the parts. Some technicians will, some will not. I fall in the "not" category, as I am being paid by FMC to use the specified parts.

1. check charge air tube,loosing boost pressure=low power and black smoke
2. check for air filter restriction,if it cant breathe it will blow smoke and run like ****
3. check for rotational drag on the turbo compressor wheel, it may be locking up causing low power and black smoke, much like cummins vgt turbo
4.oil quality,poor oil quality, ie long intervals between oil changes.
5. may have a leaking injector, not common with this style of injector but i wouldnt rule it out if nothing else checks out.....hope this helps.
