Why does honda has no compression after putting in time

One of two things, if it broke the timing belt and is what is known as an interference engine then the pistons can hit the valves and bend them causing no compression, otherwise be sure to check all timing marks to be sure your crankshaft and camshaft are in time with one another. Hope this helps.

Car not firing

Most likely the valves were bent.
When you attempt to start the motor does it turns over a bit fast and will not sound quit right - Not even attempt to spark up or fire up.
Check engine cylinder compression. The valves were bent when the belt broke.
you will
1. check compression (and when it fails)
2. decide to have the head checked and if possible rebuilt (use new head bolts)
3. Look for and buy a low milage used motor
4. Look for a rebuilt head

Timing belt broke on hyundai sonata 2002 what should I do? The mechanic saya theres a ten percent chance that replacing the belt will solve the problem.

You can have your mechanic pull the valve cover. Loosen the bolts that hold the cam(s) in place and do a compression test. If one or more cylinders is low on compression the motor is junk. If the compression test is fine reinstall the cam and replace the timing belt and you should be good to go.

I have a 93 audi 90 series V6 2.8L 5 speed. It needs a timing belt and will not start. What is the easiest way to change the timing belt, and what other components should be changed in order for the...

the only special tools you need are a harmonic balancer puller, and a gear puller (for the cam sprocket), you are probally going to have to remove, the altanator, your belts, a motor mount, timing convers, water pump, and maybe a couple other accessries im missing, as far as what else to change, the water pump, and serpentine belt should always be done with the timing, its not a really hard job, its just tedious, a lot of nuts and bolts, you should not have to readjust anything in the system, unless you motor is what is called an inteference motor, in which case, when the timing belt broke, the piston came up and hit the valves bending them so they dont close properly, which will cause you to have little or no compression on one or some of the cylinder, the best was to check it is while you have the motor stripped down and the belt ready to put back in, it to turn the cam to isolate 1 cylinder at a time close the valves on the cylinder, then put a compression tool on it and turn the crank, if your valves are working properly, you will get some compression from the test, zero compression means bad valves or rings.

1999 ford contor timing belt broke when driving is motor freeruning or intererence motor

According to the Gates site (mfg. of belts and hoses) it is not an interference engine. I would check the compression when I replaced the timing belt as bent valves will show up on this test.

My timing belt broke

When A timing belt breaks, the best way to see if the engine is still good is to retime the motor, put a new timing belt on without the covers or anything else in the way or replaced, (that way you can see the belt and timing marks moving) and do a compression test one each cylinder. you're not looking for compression to be at specs, you just need to have a compression reading on each cylinder. if you have compression in each one, finish the job up and it should work. if you have no compression in one or more cylinders, chances are you have a bent valve. that involves pulling the heads off and having them gone through.

hint: To reset the timing on the engine move each gear just a little at a time swtiching between them each time. If you start to feel any binding that feels like you're hitting a piston, you probably are. it's normal to feel some tesion from the springs, bout you can still turn the gear with a little effort. it's tricky to describe the difference, but once you feel the spring pressure, you'll know what the feel of a valve on a piston feels like. if this happens, just move the crank a little bit and then go back to the cams. take your time and you'll be able to get the motor re-timed.
