    You might obtain more beneficial assistance if you state a couple of relevant details such as whether it's a TT or NA.
    If you provide your location, there may be a member in close proximity that is able to provide guidance.
    An engine compression test might be a good place to start.
    Then you could drain the oil & look for signs of metallic particles in the oil.

    Give Rollin aka Niall on here a call on or better still text him and use your user name from here as well as your real name, with a brief description of the issue, he most likely will book you in for a appointment at his workshop in Clontarf. Niall 0410 492 774
