Re: help cheap garage needed

Loss of compression is normally as sparks says, pressure going down bores (scored or just worn piston rings), out of head gasket (normally accompanied by overheating as the water is forced out the radiator safety valve), past the valves(depends on whether its carb or injection as to how to test these without taking thehead off).

How 'well' does the engine run(if at all)? You said "no compression" which suggests more than just a minor 'fault'.
