I have a 04 chevy aveo and no compression on cylinder one and two car wont start where do i go from here?

Do a Cylinder Leak Down Test & check
timing & belt

Compression is not much value
as far as cylinder & valve sealing goes

I would guess the valves a worn & the head
has to come off

Does an 04 aveo have an interfernce engine?

Yes a 2004 chevy aveo with a 1.6 L inline 4 cylinder is an interference engine. Hopefully you did'nt snap the timing belt while driving, because usually it will bend up some valves and even could crack a piston. Most likely if that did happen you will need to take the head off and have the valves inspected / replaced and inspect for piston damage as well......Mike

I'm instaling a timing belt on a 04 aveo and i don't know how to reset the timing marcks.

This site i have attached is everything you need. Your going to need to replace driving belt as well since it is needed to remove dust covers for timing belt. If you have had the belt snap while on either ideling or driving you will probably need to buy a whole complete cylinder head. Cheaper then replacing valves and cracked cylinder head. Look in craigslist to have a mechanic to come to you and replace belts. Chevy will charge you too much. At least craigslist will have people that come to you and help after hours.

My 04 chevy aveo just had the timing belt and water pump replaced, and then the mechanic said 2 of the 4 cylinders were bad and the vlaves were bent. does that happen?

I just wanna know how was it possible for him to know the (hidden under the cylinder head cover) valves were bent while only changing the timing belt and water pump ( both located at the side of the engine).

My aveo 04 manual wont start gets a spark ,fuel and replaced timming belt it was chewd up after car stalled on me in the high way but still wont start. gears also shift into place whats wrong?

If the timing belt became chewed up it would seem the belt/timing has slipped (do not try starting it like this bad things could happen) You'll need to replace the timing belt, tensioner and insure the proper mechanical timing is done for it to run properly if at all. If the belt failed at highway speed and it has a interference fit engine this would mean a valve or two may be bent too. I'd check the timing and once this is corrected I'd checking cylinder compression.
I hope this may have helped,

Changing a timing belt on 04 aveo

We've repaired 3 at our Chevy shop so far so you'll have to trust me when I say it's not for the faint of heart or for anyone without the special tools it takes to hold the cams in place. It is quite a job! Sorry!!

2004 aveo timing belt broke, all valves bent

just go to any junk yard and find a used deawoo lanos and pull the head if timing belt was not broke, if it looks good, its a exact fit 100%, no special tools needed, just normal wrench set and torqe wrench. after head is installed, get a gates timing belt only.
