I would start with the easy items first. Oil and filter change with high quality oil, like Mobile 1 full synthetic. Make sure to use the correct weight. Next, have the PCV changed. Last, add a couple bottles of Techron fuel injection cleaner to the fuel tank for the next 3 fill ups. Give it some time and see if things improve.

Bummer on the engine failure. I think you had a cylinder head gasket slowing failing. Once the vehicle was shut off when warm, some coolant would seep into the combustion camber overnight. This seepage would cause a misfire during the next startup in the morning and would clear up within a few miles.

Good call, maybe the poster is seeing burnt coolant (steam) from the exhaust pipe. He should check his coolant level before it is too late.

Thank you for the reply.
