Question about 2002 Ford Escape
Sounds like a Timing chain or gear issue to me too. But check the Starter drive gear and Flywheel teeth. What bothers me is that all cylinders are dead without 1 cylinder creating drag on the compression or power stroke. It seems a little funny that 1 cylinder does not have all valves closed out of 4 cylinders.
I envision the Starter spinning without the motor turning and this can happen if the Starter Bendix stripped or the Flywheel stripped. You would have zero compression. You can put a probe into the cylinder and turn the Crankshaft pulley to determine if the pistons are moving.
Would like to know the outcome of this.
