No compression = a major leak in the cylinders. If the chain got loose then the timing went way off. Because of the very tight tolerances in the engine, when the timing went off the pistons have started hitting the valves, bending them out of shape and jamming them open.
At least all the valves will have to be replaced, probably the pistons also. The head will have to be almost surely planed.

1989 Mercedes 560 sel, w126, Car will start and idle fine for 10 min. then stall and will not restart until next morning...


catalytic converter is clogged basically its stopping up your exhaust. Over time the pressure will slowly vent out, allowing your car to start, only to build up the backpressure again, stalling engine.

Saturn 1999 sl Engine has a high idle speed. How do I find, replace, inspect IAC?


The Idle Air Control valve is located on the throttle body. If you follow the intake tube from your air filter all the way back to the intake manifold, where the intake tube connects to is the throttle body. Remove the intake tubing and you can see the throttle body.

There are two sensors on the throttle body and a vacuum line. You'll see two harnesses going to the throttle body, one is the IAC.

However, a quick diagnostic check can be done without touching the throttle body to confirm your problem. If the car has a normal idle when initially started but then rises to a higher idle and stays there BUT then if you were to shut the car off and restart it and it comes back to normal that is the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). This is also located on the throttle body (the other sensor to the IAC). If it is the IAC it will be high and maybe fluctuate a bit.
