Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

flashing check engine light ,telling we have sever misfire and you should stop driving on it since engine or catalyst damage will happen?

are you losing oil where you have to add and no leaks, same thing for coolant ?

if you pull oi dipstick out ,does oil looks milky ?

the white smoke at idle usually is Valve stem problem ,lets say at a traffic light ,you sit and wait for light and when you take off you see white buff of smoke and goes away

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do have a power probe for testing ?

Do you have a test light so we can check for spark ?

Do you have fuel pressure tester to check for fuel ?

Did you scan it with factory scanner or equivalent to retrieve faults codes for vehicle modules ?

Please let me know

Thank You
