I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

the problem is that the air passages in the cylinder heads are clogged and need to be cleaned out. you can try this tool but usually the heads need to be removed and sent to a machine shop to be cleaned out.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
