Re: Any help would be awesome

I would check your entire exhaust line. If you have an exhaust elbow and don't know how old it is just replace it. Its meant to be replaced every few years. Your exhaust hose or muffler could be clogged or the hose is internally delaminated.
Check the easy stuff befor you start buying parts.
Please let us know what you find for a fix. Thanks

Re: Any help would be awesome

when troubleshooting always start with the easiest.

check the air intake easiest, check the oil level...too high and thin? next check the prop,next a little bit harder check the compression, next the injector nozzles, the mixing elbow. one of those things will answer the question.

Good luck I hope it's something simple.

Absolutely. And sometimes you get lucky and it is something easy. If it is, you just saved yourself a lot of time, hassled and possibly money.
