Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant
If you had a sudden complete loss of compression in all 4 cylinders, the timing belt most likely let go. Unfortunatly the mitsubishi engine is whats known as an interference engine. This means that
without the the timing belt to keep the crankshaft and camshaft turning in sync, a piston can be
coming up while the valves are coming down where they collide, causing bent valves and/or a hole
in a piston. I wish I had better news. Hope this was helpful
