Its your throttle body needs to be reset...i had the same problem with my magna...when your battery is disconnected for too long your computer can reset itself. just advice so call an authorised dealer and doublecheck whether your model does it

Sounds like your timing belt broke. It needs to be looked at. Also may be a cam or crank sensor. I hope its not your timing belt.

Sounds like the timing belt may have broke. You can check by opening the oil cap on the valve cover and watching the valves while someone cranks the engine. If the valves do not move, your timing belt has snapped. Please let us know if this is not the cause or if you would like instructions for replacing the belt.

I'd pull the timing belt cover and check the engine timing and belt condition. It could've slipped that badly if the camshaft pulley slipped past the pin. The thing that concerns me is not getting compression - it sounds like the top end is out of time with the crank - venting compression.

Time belt istall on kia sophea

Hi. Here is the procedure on how to replace the timing belt

tools required:
- 10, 12, 14, 21 mm sockets / wrench
- 17 mm deep socket
- breaker bar
- phillips screwdriver
- 2 regular jacks
- 6 pack budlight or smirnoff

1- jack up the car and remove left tire.

2- remove two platic retainers in the cover under the fog light hole, purpose of this is to provide enough room for the fender cover to move around.

3- cover underneath the left fender to access the crank pulley. remove two plastic retainers using the phillips screwdriver, remove 3 10mm bolts that attach the cover to the crossmember (radiator support).

4- remove both alternator and power steering belts.

7- put second jack under the engine and jack it up until you can see the engine moving upwards just a couple millimeters (too much might damage the motor mounts).

8- remove left motor mount (the one by the belts) using 17mm deep socket. It will give you better access to the bolts in the timing belt cover.

5- remove timing belt cover. (6 10mm bolts)

6- with the 21mm socket at the crank pulley give the engine two full turns and align all the timing marks (small arrows pointing downwards you'll find three markings, 2 in the valve cover above the cam gears, and one one the block above the crank) TIP: I like to give the engine the two full turns, verify that everything is fine and then give it an aprox. 1/4 turn more, until i feel there is no resistance in the cam gears, then mark with a chalk stick, makes it so much easier to put the new belt on.

6- remove crank pulley

8- loosen timing belt tensioner (14mm bolt, left pulley)

that should cover everything, replacement is the inverse, should take you about 2 hours.

Honda Civic 1988 1.5 - will not turn over

timing belt might have not been tight enough a nd it jump a couple of teeth causing the valve to hit the piston. see if you can rotate the engine either way clockwise or counter clockwise if you can re time the engine.

Position sensors

It's possible that the sensor needs to be rotated. The sensor is keyed so it can only be installed in one position. The camshafts spin once for every two revolutions of the crank, so it's possible that the sensor is 360 degrees out of phase (I've had this happen on timing belt jobs on other cars - with the sensor out of phase, the car would start, and then trail off and die within a few seconds). What you can try is to carefully remove the sensor, turn it over to see the part that mates to the cam, rotate it one full revolution, and then put it back on. Try that out and see if it helps. If it does the trick, great. If not, post back up and we can try to go from there.
