Sounds like when my engine quit. What year is yours and how many miles are on it? Mine is a 2005 Roadster and it died at 57,000 miles.

It's a 2000 with about 28k miles. Engine had seemed to run strong

Did compression and leak down test. Front 45 psi, rear 200. Front 70 with leak down test so I think it must be valves.

Let my neighbours know I was home by taking her for an early brekky spin. And that of course turned into a half-day ride to find some curves.
