Hello, sounds like the timing is off. Unfortunately there is no real way to tell without removing the valve cover for that side and installing the timing tool. You can not eye ball the timing to check it, sorry. The engine could have bad timing guides or a bad VANOS unit on the cam. If you have any other questions relating to this question please ask or please leave positive feedback so I get credit for answering your question.
