I would crack each injector line whiles it's running and listen for any change in idle.
This will tell you how many cylinders are affected.

I would also start thinking about how cheap and quickly I could get it fixed.
I would go with trying to score a running engine off farcebook marketplace or Craigslist.
It sucks, no doubt.
These are cake to swap.
I have already started cost to rebuild vs getting a drop in has been a thought i know some guys that might have a few just dont have money at the moment might need to find a beater with a heater for the time being

I'd add some Lucas Oil additive and just drive it instead of finding a beater.

Oh yeah, she's F'd. That's classic cracked piston behavior. I'd know that blow by and engine cadence anywhere! It doesn't look as bad as my last cracked piston, but she's coming apart. You can see a video of what mine sounded like here. Sorry for the bad news!

Not sure I'd be driving it. Good way to pork it harder than it is now. But in the end, you gotta do what you gotta do. Id be finding a few hundred dollar engine real quick!

Heres a link to the video since i cant upload it to the website. The intake hat has oil on top of it. Part of me thinks its a bad cdr but im not really sure I dont have the money at the moment to buy the tubing to test it.

I would still do a compression check, to check for a bad piston like Bob mentioned. It's the easiest and cheapest test to eliminate that scenario. Good luck, and don't throw in the towel yet.

I would still do a comp. test. Wouldn't you be a tad bit ticked, if you pulled the motor apart, only to find the bottom end was fine, and it was a systems problem?
