be sure to drain from the sump (engine plug) and not tank. If you try to drain a portion of the tank when hot... you will drain the entire contents. Ask me how i know.

1. Warm up engine at idle... let the smoke show start... once nice and hot.. check oil...

*Anything above MIN... drain a bit?

2. Once a portion of oil is drained... go for drive...

3. Cross fingers hope no more smoke...
* and if there is still lots of smoke... cross fingers and hope for no more damage.

I will also add octane boost since the last tanke was 87 octane... which I was told is bad!!!!
