Do a compression test on the motor. Could be a blown head gasket. The compression test would show 1 or 2 cylinders with low compression.

Jumping time or timing belt breaking also would be a possibility for low compression. I would need to know what size motor you have in order to tell you if it is a interference engine or not.
