    rec. fuel system clean. ethanol treatment to 1 tank premium fuel. ethanol blend fuel causes build up in fuel system, combustion chambers, exhaust system and causes increased wear to spark plugs. build up can cause ping.
    rec. oil stabilizer treatment on next oil change. recondition seals and cylinders.
    hope remedy helps.
