Did I just blow up my engine ????

Let me explain this. I was going home thanking my time, was in 3rd gear at about 3500 RPM ready to shift for 4th and my engine just died on me, check light came on and it just stoped. I tried to start it again and the noise of it starting up isn't the same. My friend which is a mechanic came over and told me there was no compression in the engine I am so mad right now. Did this ever happend to any off you?
What can expect for cost and parts?? any suggestion?

thank so much for helping me out.

Re: Did I just blow up my engine ????

ut oh cake boy

first: check to see if the crank pulley fell off (common problem, w/ the same symptoms you said)


what exactly did your mechanic-buddy do to verify no compression? a compression test?
does the engine still crank?

Re: Did I just blow up my engine ????

Yeah I know cake boy is sad now.

well the car still cranks, but the noise that it makes when it's cranking is different, He didn't do a compression test yet, he just said that by the sound it made while cranking. I mean he said it's a possibility.

what do you mean by crank pulley falling off ? if that's was the case my car wouldn't crank right?

Re: Did I just blow up my engine ????

actually i'm not quite sure. i wanna say it would still crank if the crank pulley fell off, cuz when the engine isn't running, its getting its juice from the battery, not the alternator.


thank god it's still cranking, cuz i'm almost positive that means the timing belt hasn't snapped, which i was fearing.


did it die as soon as you threw the clutch in?!

Re: Did I just blow up my engine ????

if the crank pully fell of it would still crank because the starter moves the flywheel not the crank pully. soooooo id say compression test it and check the tranny. my friend had this problem where his car would die (97 nissan 200sx same as sentra) randomly. and start afterwards. anyways his clutch was so blown out that he literaly had about 2 mm left. that in turn caused his second gear to weld shut. as in completely welded the shop couldnt even get it popped with a crow bar and a sledge hammer. long story short check the tranny too. amazing **** happens, thats why ya need money in the bank or loving parents to bribe.

well yea. what i was saying was that if the CP did fall off, it would prolly still crank since its getting the juice from the battery, not the alternator, and if the CP fell off the alternator wouldn't be turning.

carlos, if you have the tiniest amount of mechanical knowledge, a 3/8" ratchet, 10mm socket, spark plug socket, and 6" extension, you can def do a compression test and take the valve cover off yourself cuz they are very easy to do, and will tell you/us alotta information

Your drive belts would probably be gone along with the pulley...

Re: Did I just blow up my engine ????

I pulled evrything apart. And my timing belt snaped (cut right down the middle of it). I don't know yet how many valves or damaged but, I am pretty sure my pistons are fine.
My crank sensor is damaged to. Any idea if they sell individualy valves, or used crank sensor anywhere??
Anybody know if it's cheaper to just by a new engine??

please help me out here.
