to be a breather hose connected to engine....
I took intake manifold off for more room...
Has soon as I remove lock pin the breather
hose came off(cracked right before the lock
pin) N also I discovered the reason of my

Ok..... Found the problem ppl lol. Blown headgasket and it leaked coolant in the engine on cylinder 2 explains the crazy smoke coming out the exhaust, misfire and rough idle also found out the turbo wastegate/bracket/housing was cracked. Fix: New turbo New gasket New head valve job Flush coolant system. New coolant & 2 cool/temperature sensor. Flush motor with motor flush. New oil 0w-40 full synthetic & filter. New crank shaft position sensor New cam shaft position sensor New egr valves New air filter New maf sensor New spark plugs New coils New air filter New cabin filter New vacuum line all around New clamps all around. New catalytic converter $200 on amazon Man,spend about $630.00 altogether and did all the work myself on my spare time and damn it was all worth it..... Car drives amazing smooth and fast, I made it up to 145 mph and it felt like it was flying so I slow back down lol.... I hope this will help anyone with misfire,smoke from the exhaust,and rough idle and no start lol....

Oh forgot to say that I took it to the the shop N its a shame that they told me my motor blew up and it needs a new engine and it cost $6000.00 lol but it was only small things like a head gasket and a couple of sensors.... Thanks to motor flush and seafoam for cleaning up the engine pretty good it was really shiny in the motor when I took it apart not even the oil pan had any yellow gooy stuff lol.
