Vehicle does not start.

Engine Repair:

Owner could not get the vehicle started

What We Did:
  • Verified no start condition, engine turns over (cranks) but does not start.
  • Sounds like there is no compression, so we performed compression test – does not look good.
  • All cylinders had 0 psi compression, should have been at least a 100 psi.
  • Further inspection revealed broken timing chain guide.
  • Removed cylinder head, replaced bent valves, replaced all timing chain components, (major engine repair) vehicle starts and runs good after repair.
