What could it be? Car died. I lost all compression on all 4 cylinders in my car ?
This is a 2000 Dodge Neon 4 CYL 16 valves,SOHC engine.
Ok. On oct 1st I was driving about 60 mph for about 6 minutes after leaving my house in the morning I heard a noise that sounded like a pulley belt then the car turned off, pulled over to a parking and checked to see if a belt broke and they both were there. I checked the timing belt still on. try to start it and the timing belt look to be ok and turning. I did notice that when cranking it sounded weird like it had no compression at all at the pistons. I towed the car home checked the compression an all 4 cylinders and I was right I had no compression at all on all 4 cylinders. I see the timing belt turning when I crank it so I know for sure that it can't be the timing since the belt was replaced MAY, 2009 when the water pump went bad along with a new pump and rebuilt head w/brand new valves.
I'm not sure what 's going on all i know is when I crank it the timing belts turns, the pulley belts all turn fine.
This is the first time I had this problem. I fix all my cars but this is a first for me.
If anyone has any idea what could it be I appreciate your help. I just spent a lot of money on this car so I need to have an idea before I start pulling it apart after installing a new head gasket set with all the new parts. THANKS
