I have tried using an in-line tester on the plugs and the spark looks a bit orange instead of blue. I have run compression test and it shows a good bit of compression.
I've even tried a spare ECM of the same model.
What has me stumped is the backfire with white smoke that smells like fuel.
Initially my friend put over 7 quarts of oil in the car when it broke down. Thinking it would help. I picked the car up and it started but had no power. When I realized how much oil was in it I promptly changed the oil. The car will no longer start.
I have also cleaned the MAF on the intake boot with proper cleaner.
When the car backfires a little puff of the smoke comes from a round thing (dont know exactly what) that sits on a pedestal looking thing on the back drivers side of the motor. I dont know if this helps much.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.
