Re: it starts up good then in app. one min. the
Sounds like ABS module fault
its getting signal thinking your driving and an ABS event is happening the ABS ECU comands engine ECU to reduce power(missfire) need to read codes from system to point you in right direction.

well when you throttle up to about 2000rpm do you get blue smoke coming out the exhaust.When driving on flat road will it power up as normal with out missing or getting hot.
what colour was the old spark plugs were they black or light brown.
When you start engine and run for 3 minutes then let it idle and remove oil filler cap do you get smoke coming out.
Number 1 if yes then engine is lacking power due to piston rings worn answer rebuild engine.
Number2 spark plugs brown [good] if black soot as num1.
Number 3 if you get black smoke or blue ,then the engine is lacking compression could be your problem as num1
OTHER WISE GET YOUR TIMING CHECKED AND SET TO BOOK.
if it takes 5-10 mins of running before black smoke disappear i think you could have broken rings causing engine oil into the combustion chamber. you could observe white smoke if you have just changed oil.
solution would be to replace piston rings. it would save u a lot if u could diy.
I feel its very probable that the cam belt is not timed as accurately as it should be .. this will certainly cause all that you mention - ie, starting troubles - smoke on occasion especially when its struggling to start and also, the starting in limp mode....or, if its not true limp mode... missing / poor running ... ( it wont be true limp mode if there is no engine light / fault codes ) So - the timing / timing belt really has to be checked first ..and put right / go from there.. You will get oil in the pipe you mention - thats normal..so long as its not absolutely swimming in it - it shouldn't be awash - but there will be some... Just check the oil level with the dipstick though - Its imperative that its not even a smidgen above the high mark... if it is - it can cause severe engine damage... it would need to be drained off some. Ideally the oil level should be just below the top mark. Even a slight overfill will cause smoke too. After the above - I will just mention, this engine does suffer with faulty ECT sensor... This when failing, will also cause poor starting and smoke and missing... You could if you wish , try that first - fit a new one. Again - its a very common fault on these... The sensors are only about $30 and changed in mins. It is possible that this sensor has failed with all the work thats gone on.. So do bear that in mind also... These sensors wont always set a fault code neither when they go down. Hope helps.
Change the coolant sensor but check the coolant level first. If it is low fill it up & allow car to heat up. When the coolant sensor malfunctions, this is what to expect with these cars. It s located close to the thermostat housing. Good luck!
