The first thing you need to do is a compression test so we know what you are working with. Let me know what all cylinder readings are please. And make sure to wright each one down,as I need to know what each cylinders actual readings are please.

Is this the 3.0 or the 2.7?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
2.7 gas
Expert:  kalamykid replied 18 days ago.

Those numbers are to low. The comp test should have readings over 170. With the low numbers, you need to check the timing chain and guides.
