I plan to do as many tests as I can in the morning time, Im just trying to grasp what i need to look for in the morning.
misfire's cause check engine light blinking, was it blinking? misfire CEL can turn off on its own while driving. im not talking about the cruise and SI drive lights, the actual CEL. the smoke out of the oil filler is not good, but, i suppose it would be possible a blown turbo could create this- not sure, all i know is cracked ringlands more times than not cause this.
a compression test will rule out piston problems....simple as that. turbo shaft play check will determine if the turbo is the culprit of all this. i doubt you blew BOTH, but odder things have happened on this site.... thats why a comp test and shaft play check will immediately rule out the top 2 contenders of these symptoms.
