Flashing Engine light, white smoke out back?

My ZO6 came on tonight with the Check Engine light... about 5 miles later, it starts to flash, DIC said 32 PSI oil pressure... so I do not panic... I come to a stop and the engine died... all kinds of white smoke out the back... a few cranks later, we are off and running, check engine light still blinking... Passenger checks the manual.. a flashing check engine = missfire? which makes sence, the car feels like it is running on 4 or 6 not all 8...
Lots of white smoke... parked the car, the smoke was very sweet smelling, did not smell like oil...

I also dumped in a quart of Mobil 1 which I carry with me...

Any ideas?

Will be taking it to dealer in the AM.

Good point, I was going to change it this weekend... due to the fact that it was low to start (They also told me while it was there that I will need the new Piston Rings.. I do not know if I will get the new rings, or wait to see what they do in 2003 and then trade the car) I really do not like them going into the motor like that.

He said that just by looking at the tips of the muffler, he could tell that I was burning oil bad, and would not need the oil consumption tests... My Z06 ate 2 quarts of oil in 2 hours of racing...

If I where to enter a 24 hours race, I would need 12 quarts.... but hey, I would be running really clean oil I guess /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

It is usually good practice to change oil after a misfire problem. Raw fuel sometimes gets in crankcase and thins things down.

Glad your problem was minor. (No teardown)
