Not sure but according to technician at the time he attended to those problems ,he seems to think the compression pressure is to low for a Diesel engine, he said we should replace all gaskets or bearings ,Ashe has taken the head off

Ok, I am showing normal compression to be 27-32bar, so compression is low. A wet compression test using a ounce of oil into each cylinder should have been performed to see if compression increase or not. If it increases, then it is piston rings, if not then it is valves
