Sounds like the rings are gone. Time to pull the engine aprt and inspect it.

I had the same problem, and it was rings....make sure you check the cylinder as well...if it's smooth, and no cross hatch left...replace it or re plate it...I learned that part the hard way........

hmm, the piston and rings are all new, but i noticed somting strange with the oil expander ring, (the ring that holdes the two small ones from each other) had a 10 mm end gap.. on the old piston it was 0-1 mm end gap on the ring.. can this be a production "error" or what its called?=) thnx for all the replyes
