These have a problems with the converter in front breaking up and allowing particles to get sucked back into the engine and scoring the cylinder walls causing blow-by.
A cylinder leak down test can help confirm this. Probably going to need an engine.

Call the dealer and see if there is a warranty for this. They may reject it, but nothing to lose.
