Yesterday everything was fine. I slowed down and stopped. When I started pedaling again i heard a noise drowning out my cassette which isnt the normal sound and my hub gradually got quieter and starting slipping. I took it apart and cleaned everything and no change. My friends genius self decided to put motor oil in instead of just oil while i went to the bathroom. It is so quiet it sounds like a freecoaster and slips alot. How do I fix and get back to normal i don't know whats wrong!

So by him putting motor oil in it caused the quietness and slipping?

If that's the case just clean it out real good and regrease it. If that doesn't work you could replace all the internals.

Check the pawls & springs and make sure nothing's wrong with them, push down on the pawls & they should give a nice firm spring back.. if they don't, then you likely need new springs

There's your problem. I think Primo Mix pawls/springs will fit it if you're trying to save cash. $10 for 4 pawls & 4 springs here, as opposed to $4.99 for a single Profile spring.

Nope, I've read places that the Profile driver will fit in a Primo hub, but Primo driver won't fit in a Profile hub
