Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

I have seen issues with the fuel injectors not atomizing correctly causing this here needing cleaned or replaced as well as low cylinder compression due to worn valves or piston ring failure.

If you have not done a cylinder compression test with a compression test gauge this needs done.if found low compression then a cylinder leak down test needs done on the low compression cylinder to locate if this is a valve or piston/cylinder issue then the engine repaired from there.

If the compression is o.k. and even on all cylinders then I would have the fuel injectors tested to see if one or more need cleaned or replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Thanks Pete
