Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Jumped timing chain would not give intermittant problems. Hate to invoke my old favorite, but when in doubt, I always go to the intake plenum gasket when symptoms like this appear. Also, using any oil? That can also indicate plenum gasket failure. When it fails, it's one helluva vacuum leak.
