I know that I need to get it scanned (will get it towed tomorrow) but I would like to have some idea what could be the problem so here are the symptoms. This is for a 2.7T Tip allroad with ~165k miles.
At idle it will sit at ~700rpm but sounds and feels really rough. Enough to lightly shake the whole car.
Will smooth out slightly when accelerating but is still noticabley rough.
Check engine light will flash for about 5 sec while accelerating and then turn off.
Shifting through all the gears doesn't change anything.
After stopped from a 10 min drive there was noticable, but not heavy, smoke coming from both front wheel wells and from the firewall area. Smelled like it could be oil.
I just did an oil change about 1000 miles ago (not sure if that matters 0w-40 Mobil 1).
To my knowledge everything is stock and original (ie turbos, cats, hoses, etc.).
I did have a previous intermitent CEL that was for P4021.
That's about all I can think of that may help. I originally thought it was a misfire due to a coilpack or spark plug but now I'm leaning more towards something with the turbo(s) or possibly the CAT(s). I shot a quick video of the engine idling and once I figure out how to link it I'll put it up. I don't think you can tell much and the valve train sounds a lot louder on the video then in person (kind of wierd).
What are some opinions on what I'm looking at? Thanks guys.
