SOURCE: had a cambelt break on

Its because your pistons on 1&4 are up top that is why your bent valves got bent you are doing exactly the same thing so turn the crank back 15degrees position your cam and reset your crank,it seems to me you may be out of your depth lets hope not or it may be expensive

Why is there no compression in engine on my 1991 mitsubishi pajerno


This has to be because of a mechanical problem in the engine. Possible sources are the timing belt is broken (one indication is the starter spins the engine faster than normal, because the camshaft that opens and closes valves is not turning with the crankshaft), or the head gasket has failed (from overheating as the most likely cause), or badly worn piston rings and/or valves not sealing well (common on high mileage engines).
Compression is built up in the upper part of the cylinder where combustion occurs, so leaks or lost compression are due to valves not sealing, or head gasket that seals the cylinder head to the engine block-sometimes the aluminum cylinder head can warp due to overheating, and the head gasket no longer can maintain a seal. Or also the piston rings are worn so bad that compression will leak past them into the crankcase. For valves or head gasket, the cylinder head has to be removed and repaired. For the rings, the engine has to be rebuilt entirely.
First check if the timing belt is still intact.

2004 Cavalier broken rocker arms after head gasket repair.


Rocker arm issues are common in that car. They can happen without any reason. This is not going to be cheap to look at. When the head was repaired it had to be removed. The timing chain might not have been properly tensioned. That would cause the timing chain to slip and then you have pistons slapping valves and spark plugs. This cause rocker arms and pushrods to bend or break and also can damage pistons.

At 115,000 my 4 cyl is leaking coolant into #4 cyl, no detectable coolant in oil,no oil in coolant. I assume head gasket problem. I need advice and opinion and recommendation of what manual to purchase so...


tricky job ...but ok ..just make sure you lock the cam gears if its 16 valve, sometimes you can use a wine cork if you dont have the tool , just put it between the cam s to prevent it from spinning inward ,,when reassembling after the following, so you can keep timing right while you replace the belt ....make sure you replace the belt dont reuse it...while your in there replace the water pump as well if it runs off the timing belt....its due with 115k....as well as cam seals head gasket valve cover gasket kit...intake manafold gasket..exuast gasket....also it is recommended that you replace head bolts in order to get the best tork spec.....and make sure the timing marks are correct and that your top dead center on the compression stroke #1 cylinder.....since thers no oil in the radiator its probly just a head gasket ..but send the head out have it magnaflexed check for cracks and have it decked ..milded flat if needed..it may be warped just alittle...you never know but after all that work you want to be sure...you cuold also replace front main seal while your in there...and valve seals on the head since its off anyway napa charges about 180.00 to redue the head..goodidea........

Assuming that the timing settings aren't 180 degrees out you might be sucking in air in the fuel line.

Smoke problem


Sounds as though you have water in the oil. The white smoke is the steam. Check your oil by taking the dip stick out and if it looks like mayonnaise then your head gasket will need replacing. Once the head is off the engine block, there is no way safely to say how much work will be needed on the cylinder head. If the head gasket has blown then you will need to fit a new timing belt also.
