Most major auto part chain stores have a loaner code scanner (they require you to leave your ID while you use the tool in their parking lot). There is a connector under the dash near on the drivers side that accepts the reader....check the codes and Google them for repair info or post them back here.

SOURCE: what is the cylinder compression psi fpr the 2.0 liter engine

usual on 4 cylinder around 175psi.225psi is very high for your car,150psi seems ok,you may have two problems.A leaking head gasket and high compression due to carbon build up on the pistons.Check your Hyundai Dealer to see is this problem is covered under their 100,000 mile warranty,it should be.IF not then
the head needs to come off and had gasket replaced along with clean the top of pistons since they are right there,sounds like and easy fix.also check condition of radiator,and I would rec. replacing thermostat since some Hyundai models had problems with their thermostats

I have a 2012 Mercedes C250 sport. I know it has a turbo in it, but I can't find it in the engine bay. Where is it?

turbo units are attached directly to the exhaust manifold at the engine --probably under a silver heat shield
follow the hose back from the inlet manifold and you will find it

Misfire in cyl 4 and 7. Oil on spark plug 4. Cyl 4 is 30 psi compression. No power. Rough idle. Check engine is on...... Do I need new engine?

Sorry Kylar if one cylinder is down to 30 psi you either have to look inside the engine to locate the problem, or get a replacement engine.

What happens if the timing belt breaks

The engine will stop running.
The 4 cyl turbo and 6 cyl engines are interference engines, which means the valves could be damaged if the cam stops and the pistons keep going.

Whats the make-up of the r?otating assembly

It all depends on how much pressure you intend to run the turbo or supercharger at. If you won't exceed around 12 psi, you can keep the engine stock without damaging or shortening the engine life too much. If you wanna go bigger than that, you might need to upgrade the pistons and crank. And as for compression, either a charger or turbo will do the same thing as far as the compression is concerned, so if compression is too high for a turbo, it's too high for a charger also. And I'd start checking more for upgrading the fuel system than the engine assembly parts, cause you will need more fuel in the engine to compensate for more air coming in due to turbo or charger way before you need to strengthen the engine for the extra power.

Engine starts but shuts down immeditately

1989 Chrysler 2.5 L Turbo has a duel hall effect pick-up in the distributor. It is possible that the pick-up is not working. A "start and stall" indicates that this may be the problem.
Another problem may be the fuel system. Check fuel pressure with key on... should be 40-50 psi on multi-port. 30-40 on TBI
PS If the auto shutdown relay quit then you would not get a start at all. PSS oil pressure will cause a similer problem
