Holes in first layer

I've tried to level, and re-level numerous times. I've tried to set up mesh leveling and no matter what I do I always seem to get these tears in the first layer whenever its filling in the solid part. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I never had this problem until recently.

    Check for:
    -extruder gear set screw
    -clean your extruder
    -check for any filament leaking
    -maybe print slowly, looks like the extruder cant catch up with the movement making it skip
    -tighten your extruder arm

    Thank you! I think I fixed it. I just got fed up with it and replaced all the springs, the extruder for an all metal one, and the ptfe tube just in case. With the new extruder it seems to be working much better.

    Interesting. I get these too. Slowing down seems to help but not ideal.

    go for more powerful extruder with stepdown gear ratio for better torque. BMG and Titan both works fine but may need to increase Esteps to around 400 depending which one you'd like, definitely need calibration. Direct or bowden setup with or without all metal hotend, you need to place that capricorn tubing flush with whatever it is touching..
