Take the plug out, squirt oil in the cylinder, kick it without the plug in a few dozen times to clear the engine and pipe, install plug, kick until it starts. If still no compression, ya got engine problems-hole in piston or bent valve, etc

Is there a sensor that will make car use oil,not start,low compression turn over like it jump time

Cars only lose oil for two reasons, wear and leaks.

Wear on piston rings especially the oil scraper ring which is the bottom one on the piston.

Wear on valve stems which have oil on one end of the valve stem and the combustion chamber at the other.

Leaks from any part of the engine, usually head gasket, rocker cover gasket or sump gasket.

Is there a sensor that will make car go threw oil, not start,low compression and sound like it jump time

No one sensor to cause issue, would of been nice to know the Year,make and model, but it really does sound like it might be a catastrophic engine failure. If you see oil puddle under car engine is definitely done.
If you have any luck. it will just be a timing belt, that can go with out what they call not interference fit, which means it will not damage valves, pistons,etc.

White liquid in gearbox

The liquid is emulsified water. Condensation in the gearbox, riding in creeks or a from high pressure car wash is where the water usually comes from. The gears emulsify the water into the oil thus turning the oil whitish. Just drain the oil then put in fresh oil, ride for a mile or two then change the oil again. No real harm has been done to the engine. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Milky oil leaking from left side caseing?

If water gets inside the gearbox, it will emulsify due to the "blending" caused by the gears and crankshaft. It turns the oil a milky color. The water can come from a bad oil seal on the water pump (if the bike is water cooled), or from condensation inside the gearbox. Sitting out in the rain, pressure washing or riding in creek beds can also be the water source. Find the water source and fix the seal or otherwise remedy the exposure. You will need to do an oil change. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have mud like stuff in my radiator

Mud like stuff? You mean oil like stuff? Is it white and greasy looking? This is not good. Check your oil for water, sounds like you have a head gasket going. Look for steam out the exhaust after it warms up. Drip some oil off the dipstick onto the hot exhaust and see if it sizzles, (water) oil will just smoke. Keep an eye on the temp gauge. Don't let it overheat. And shut it down if it does. A radiator shop can tell you if you have lost compression. Hope this helps.

My 1995 Toyota Tacoma 4 cylinder 2.7 liter automatic 4wd is missfireing on three of the four cylinders. The miss fire is very random happening more and more frequently. I have good compression and timing....

Pull codes from OBD computer go from there. Could be other problems, check fuel pressure, All electrical connectors- loose, water, dirty, ground connections, etc. Could be a failing sensor. How do you know its missfiring on 3-4? one or two cylinders would be a really bad shake. Creek is to deep stay out of creek. Good luck!

Coolant in the block, it is either head gasket or water pump. I think it is the water pump , how far down do you have to go to get at the water pump on a 2.7litre

I dont know how you learnt about engines but if some ones been telling you about it then there up the creek,as
COOLANT has to be in the block and in the heads and in the heater as its a water cooled engine. BUT if you mean the water is in were the oil is then you have got a problem like either a cracked head/or a blown head gasket/ a cracked block /or just a lnlet manifold water jacket gasket or cracked , But tell me has the engine overheated in the past 4 days of driving/has the engine lost a lot of coolant/has the engine been running rough??????????????? if yes to any of these then changing the water pump isent going to do anything for you except waste your money as water pumps have to have a bad groaning noise and loss of water running out of the front of engine going or not .
BUT wont put water in the oil ..
So let me know what the answers are as soon as poss so we can see if we can fix your car. Ron

Would a blown headgasket cause lost compression

well its like this.
if indeed the oil ports through the head through the bolck and down into the oil pan then indeed the engine is going to be oil starved.
if its oil starved for any durations the pistins will begin to melt.causing compression to be lost.
head gasket is the least of your worrys here.
the head gasket is going to survive a lot longer than the pistons in an oil starve situation.
thank goodness its an inline six.
these are very simple to might want to pull the sparkplugs and look at the tips to see if you can see melted aluminim on them.
you can also do a compression test to verify comp loss.if theres no compression you will have to pull the head anyway ifs its the gasket or if there was a preexisting head gasket condition yes it could be causing the two cyl to exchange compression.but a head gasket will not be caused by oil stave.

hope this helps
thank you
