Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist here.Usually this is due to a burned or damaged intake or exhaust valve needing replaced.I would have a leak down test done to see if this is for sure an intake or exhaust valve needing replaced.
If you had any engine noises with this issue here before or when this occurred then it’s possible it’s the piston rings or piston at fault but most of the time it’s a burned or damaged valve needing replaced.Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help.A 5 star rating is appreciated.You can reply back at any time if needed before or after a rating is left.Thanks Pete
