is it oil or fuel? smell them and see if they smell like fuel. U could either have worn piston rings or leaking injectors or ur deff not getting enough air into the combustion chamber

the same thing is going on with me-- oil psi is good, doesnt over heat, has a slight knock now (****), oil is clean, oil on two of the plugs, very low on power.

no joke, driving down the road it's easy to run over a plastic bag.
If you get 150 psi when doing a compression check, your compression is good, leaking down is normal depending on ring gap. Bad oil rings will let oil by the compression rings and into the cylinders. Does it smoke, miss, oil level, More info on whats going on.
