Hello Joey!
Looking at your brief description about the Timing Belt Replacement. May I suggest a couple of things?
You obviously are Technically adept as replacing cam belts are not the easiest of tasks? However as you are aware when a belt breaks Unless a safe engine the pistons may clip the inlet or exhaust valves and although you are seeing compression one or more may be sticking or possibly the Cam or its cradle has suffered damage, this happened on my Mitsubishi Pajero! I had full compression on all cylinders but would Not run! I made further investigations and found the Cam Carrier/s were ripped out of the cylinder head. I helicoiled them and Bingo instant start.
I hope this points you in the right direction as I'm sure you will solve it with our/my assistance!
Good Luck! and a Happy New year to You and your Family,
Paul 'W'

I had my timing belt changed after breaking on my 2004 Kia Optima, it caused valve damage and my bill was $1,295.00. About 4 months later it broke again causing the whole motor to explode now the car...


On smaller engines the timing belt should be checked regularly.When the belt breaks the camshaft stops turning and valves stay open at wrong time but the pistons keep moving and come up to top of cyclender and crash into the valves causing the first bit of damage.What I think happen to cause it to break again prematurly was somthing was still bent from first time causing resistance on belt which caused belt to break second time.These engines cant take that kind of abuse once never mind twice.I dont think second belt was installed wrong to cause this.Like I said the mechanic missed somthing bent or damaged the first time.But unfourtunatly this will be hard to prove.Unless you requested and still have old parts from first time work was done and can prove that it was mechanic neglegants.Good Luck.
