97 escort dead ?
working on a 97 escort. compression on cyl 1 & 3 is 120 , 2 & 4 are 0 .
Would a belt affect only 2 cyl ?
It might depending on how much it jumped.
Just trade dat sucker in!! Time for a new ride, Clyde!! Great time to consider an upgrade, partna!! Sliiide on down to your local Mazda Dealer and scoop up a hot new ride with fries on the side!! Hollar back at me one time, dawg!!!
Could also be a head gasket problem.
I reset the timing belt & rechecked compression, got 90 for cyl 1&3 still 0 for cyl 2&4. don't see a valve job in my future,think i'll just call a time & put a toe tag on it.
Dawg!!! Rock out in style with a new or CPO ride...do it Big Willie Style, ya heard!!
