Looks as if your engine has lost compression. If you take the oil filler cap off w/engine running and it is blowing air and some smoke out of it this is probably a problem in your bottem end, Rings, cylinder wear. Piston's, etc. If not blowing out oil filler you probably have valve trouble in top end, heads. Either way this will not be cheap. Sorry. Steve931 :roll:
