Sure sounds like pre-ignition from your description of symptoms. If the timing hasn't been messed with, I wonder if you have some carbon buildup on the pistons. Squirting water in the intake while the engine is running could help it. Also some techron in the tank for a while might help.


Don't own a Vanagon.
Don't work at Boeing.
Life is good.
