Sounds as if the cylider head gasket may have blown. If the engine oil has changed to a grey colour, thats the problem. Even if the oil hasn't changed I'd suggest a cylinder compression test fromyour friendly motor machanic

Code shows missfire on No 1 cylider. When engine is cold it runs a rich mixture. If the missfire is still No 1 then check for vac leak on manifold. Perhaps a vac line or intake gasket.
