Loosing my mind

A can of fix a crap isn't going to fix the problem. If your saying (which you did) that all the ring have oil on them this is probably caused by reversion. Your main issue is likely only involved in CYL 3. 525isport is right. Your going to have to take the engine apart. Changing your oil weight isn't going to help. Here's a long shot senecio...maybe you have bad valve seals which has been the cause of the random smoke. A totally different issue just started when your heard a knock then Tap tap tap. Sounds like you might have dropped part of a valve seat or something punched a hole in the piston. That would explain the noise, misfire now (no compression) and the oil. Maybe you can borrow a camera from someone and send it down there. Adam
