The Ecotec 1.8- 1&2gen. tends to get "choked and eratic" when the throtlehousing gets dirty
espesially when your run. HP filters...the airmass gauge or something cant mix the fuel right and it swithes to Alt.Engine Prog.(E.Warn.light starts blinking!)...try getting it cleaned= worked here...;)

I would think this will be a blown turbo.
These are fed by a small oil pipe and if the unit overheats (due to wear) - this oil fill feed directly into either the inlet manifold - or the outlet - exhaust.
If it is spilling oil into the hot exhaust - you will get a thick white fog. You can confirm this by placing a clear glass bottle or jar in the exhaust stream - and see if it gets a thick coating of oil on it. If it evaporates - it's water, if not - or feels oily - new turbo or overhaul.
Best get is sortd sooner rather than later - as you may be able to save most of it for an overhaul rather than scrap it if badly worn.
