new gas, injector cleaner , new plugs, & new coil
hello, odds are we have a headgasket failure - this would explain engine miss and oil consumption
thanks. but what about the other symptoms: the valve clatter, the smothering down. are these related to a bad head gaskit? please elaborate and i'll have no problem with acceptance. thanks RT
sorry for delay-- yes those all can be related -- the next step is to do an engine compression test -- what we ae looking for is a weak cylinder
