My name is Vlad.
Does you starter engage and turn the motor when you turn the key in START?
Please reply back
Well, if it was just a bad battery, then it is simple.
It is worth to check that nothing drains you battery if that battery was not to old and just got flat.
White smoke is not a good sign, it usually happens when coolant gets into engine cylinders.
So what is the problem now? with new battery it starts and runs?
Why do you need a test light to check PCM and what are you going to check about it?
I am just a bit confused with that new information you added, please clarify.
This trouble codes indicates that PCM has not received Fuel Level BUS message from BCM. It could be caused by weak battery, so I would erase that code and check if it comes back.
You say it would not start. If you starter engages and cranks the engine but it won't fire up, then you might have an intermittent problem with crank or cam position sensor.
If you starter does not engage, then it could be completely different problem.
So it is really important to know what exactly happens to give you a correct advise
You mentioned white smoke before, so I can only link gurgling noise and rough running with possible cylinder head gasket issue allowing coolant go into a cylinder. That could cause rough running and possible overheating or engine "boiling" after turning it off.
Sometimes if it is really bad, you can see some signs on spark plugs that you replaced recently.
I would check for CO presence in your coolant, it is called "engine block testing".
Well, is white smoke comes of the tail pipe all the time?
Ok, maybe it was just un-burnt fuel that accumulated when it was not starting.
Regarding shaking( misfiring) make sure your ignition leads are OK, could be carbon tracking issue.
Regarding noise, you need to find if it is coming from the cooling system or not.
