First, the timing chain runs from the crank around the gears on both cylinder heads. There may be 2 chains. What it does is keep the closing and opening of the valves "in time" with the compression and exhaust stroke of the combustion chamber (pistons).
No compression on the entire left side is not good. If right side is okay then you have 2 chains one for each side. Left side chain must be broke or damaged.
To check the compression without using air , someone had to turn the crank over. If this was done with a bad or broke chain you may have bent valve(s) as well meaning cylinder head rebuilding or replacement.
If you plan on keeping the car for a while consider replacing or rebuilding the engine.

1999 lincoln town car firing is orange and will not start?


Not sure what you mean by firing orange. Flame out the tailpipe? Spark at a pug wire?.. If it has spark then add fuel and see if it starts ( even if breifly) If it does your ging after fuel related problems. Crash fuel cutoff switch needs reset, fuel pump or fuel pump relay or pug bad ( rusted ) Blown fuses (pump drawing too much power) ( Bad pump). Timing chain, ( or chains ) 4.6 can throw ting off and the mileage and adbuse needs to be high for this to happen. Spark can be weak but if you have it it should still run just give problems.
