DODGE NEON COMPRESSION PROBLEM

2004 Dodge Neon • 180,000 miles

Car stalled while driving- no check engine light came up. Tried to restart the engine turns over but the normal sound of admission and compression is not there, after few attempts and explosion sound happens as if firing order has been messed up. I have another working neon same year, I switched ignition coil, plugs, wires all worked OK. I opened to check on timing belt and it is in perfect condition and all marks matched at TDC. Can you please help!
Thanks

If you said no compression and it backfired, sounds like you lost your timing belt. How did you check the timing?

Start with a compression test
