GEO METRO COMPRESSION PROBLEM

1994 Geo Metro

Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Geo Metro Two Wheel Drive Manual 109000 miles

I have a 94 Geo Metro with a 1.0 3 cyl. The car has been sitting for approximately 1 month. I started the car and it ran for about 30 seconds and then stalled. When I tried to restart the car, it sounded as if it did not have any compression. The timing belt is fine. I ran a compression test. Cylinders 1 & 2 have about 30-40 psi. Cylinder 3 has about 80 psi. I suspect that the valves may be sticking open because the car has always run great. Do you think that I am on track?

If the belt has not slipped or jumped you will need to check the valves !
