PLA printing issues possibly under extrusion?

Hi all, 

I'm running into some pretty frustrating issues printing with PLA which I think these are under extrusion issues. Any thought on the cause of this - I'm not sure where to go from here.

Fixes tried:

- Changing temp +/-

- Cleaning nozzle

- Checking extruder gear alignment on shaft

- Tightening idler screw/ spring

- Cold pulls

- Centered extruder gear and ensure grub screw was tightened

- Experimental menu for heat creep (

You only posted a first layer?   Are you sure your live Z is set correctly? 

Please find a better extrusion test print and post results.
