It's condensation from sitting. Any good HD parts solvent will help get rid of most of it, and make sure once in you do a good couple of oil changes to flush out any residue.

The IDM is bad. The driver module actually has two systems in it.
The module can burn out on one side and still keep the other half of the engine running. The wiring harness could be burnt out or loose on one side and cause this to.

No compression in one cylinder


Timing belt slipped around cam pulley. Take off your timing belt cover and check the position. This would explain misfiring and compression loss. Stretched belt or missing cogs in belt likely culprit.
