did it clear up at all...or did it just keep smoking and missing??

It sounds to me like you either have a problem with your glow plug system, or your injector o rings have gone bad.......and there is always the possibility of the under valve cover harnesses coming disconnected...

The glow plugs you can test...the o rings on the other hand are more of a "gut call" type of thing as far as diagnosis goes...

Check your oil level. Had the same problem, added oil and it went away.
