Default No compression

O so I compression tested my car today and it was reading no compression on 2&4 which is the drivers side. But was getting good pressure on 1&3. My buddy says if I replace my head gasket then that should fix the issue... I want some opinions on what I should do. I mean if that will work then let me know. Please any help would be greatly appreciated

Was it running bad before hand? Maybe you didnt get a good reading? Most likely if you really have no compression then you probably have burnt valves and need to have the head(s) rebuilt.

I would check again if car was running ok. if you have no compression then you have a valve problem I would think

I would take it to a trusted shop in your area and have someone diagnose it first before you just start throwing parts at it.

Dude, these guys jump to such harsh conclusions. you have 2 cylinders with no compression on the same side. if your not over 185k miles, its the headgasket. valves do not burn out only on one side of the engine. either that, or maybe skipped a tooth on the timing belt.

Yes service was done about 60,000 ago the motor does have a lot of miles on it. I haven't bought anything yet I'm still trying to figure out what it might be. I'm going to stick my bore scope in the head and look around to see if anything is bent or broke and also im going to look at the pistons to make sure they don't have some sorta holes or anything.
