Hi there,

Can you tell me what grade of oil is being used and if it is synty or mineral oil? Also have you pulled the plugs and checked for deposits on the ends of the plugs, I am looking for a crusty white / Grey deposit, can you check this out?

I use mineral 5w30, the plugs looked ok, there was a little bit of white stuff on them.

Hi there,

You may need to move up to a 10 or 15W oil, I would also get a comp test done to check the ring s as you may have a problem there.
