Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • change the oil;
  • • check/slightly lower the idling RPM;
  • • consider/try adjusting the clutch.

This is an independent site and members of this online community provide information, repair tips, technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
