Any sign of diesel in the water ? sounds like head gasket to me and the engine will rebuild ok but have the dealer put in new injector tube sleeves and O seals .

If problem is only on startup and when idleing, then the problem is likely IAC system, also a vacuum leak will cause the same problem.
If problem is not only on startup and idle, but also when driving, then MAP sensor and EGR system must be checked.
Check also accelerator cable state and setting.
The first thing to do is pulling out the OBDII fault codes stored in the ECM. This is done connecting a code reader to the ECM diagnostic port. The job can be done for a small fee at any local garage, and it is done for free at AutoZone.
The codes will help locating the problem.
About possible faults:
Problem is stalling when idling and during startup, but engine idling fast all the time. Problem not starting at times it is due to the fact that the wrong mixture is being sprayed, this is probably causing flooding and misfire. Since the CEL is on, one of the codes returned is probably misfire.
Check IAC system. This is composed by a valve and a solenoid that check and control amount of extra air air when the engine is idling. The IAC valve is located on top of the throttle body.
Check the vacuum system and try cranking with gas tank cap off. Vacuum system is tested using an hand tool gauge onvacuum lines while spraying card cleaner on the hoses (or heating them with a torch). If there is a leak, pressure will go up. A big leak will also do hissing noise, and will often result in a lean code when doing an OBD code scanning.
This kind of symptoms can also be caused by weak wiring to MAP/MAF sensor (MAP in this engine).
If the car also drives very rough and is revving up and down in a weird way, check the EGR valve.
As first thing I would do a code scanning. This car is OBDII. The scan can be done for free at the nearest Autozone, or for a small fee at any garage.
If you get any OBDII code from the scan, report it here, so that we can individuate the possible reason for the problem.

If you are sure that the engine oil is coming into the combustion chamber, then you have to overhaul the engine. After the overhaul is done, have it calibrated and and clean the exhaust pipe to get rid of the black smoke. And! remember, for diesel engines a big black smoke will always come out the exhaust if you suddenly step on the gas too deep and then over-revving it. (I mean always, that's why roadside emissions people are so stupid when stepping on the gas, they always step on it suddenly and over-rev it, it's a sure fail)

SOURCE: Don't start after oil change
4 jx1 motor stop running after oil change. Flush engin and and get it started for short while, flush it again and run for 5min. Change the oil (5w30) and dont start. Clean the injectors in ultrasonic bath and got it running for 3 min. Now its dead, look like a funeral.

i believe the engine is running too lean as if it was running too rich it would blow black smoke If it was blue smoke it is oil related eg valve stem seals,valve guides and or piston rings all of these things will create blue smoke if one of the above is worn out
