NO COMPRESSION

1989 Isuzu I-Mark

1989 Isuzu I-Mark 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

My son replaced the timing belt and tensioner. It ran fine for a day and then quit. He backed it out of the driveway and it made alot of noise. Our mechanic neighbor did some tests and said there is no compression and needs a new engine? Is there anything else we can do before investing in a new engine or scrapping it? It is a very well kept car.
Thank you
