Sorry I was at work and had to end it mid-sentence.
We need to eliminate some things. You are sure the fuel and spark is good? Just to cover the basics.
We are assumng the fuel pressure is good.
What codes are listed in the computer.
Is the anti-theft light on?
IF the fuel is and spark are both good that only leaves timing and compression. We know the compression is bad on 2 cylinders.
Timing chain may have jumped is the only other thing that I can think of that may be causing a 2nd potential problem, but doubt it at 90,000 miles.
I would pull the head and get it thoroughly checked, would be surprised if it was cracked. Try to identify the cause of failure areas if possible.
I would replace the head bolts on this and be sure that the tightening sequence and torque is followed and met. I don't see why you would have to go back into the head area in the event of a no start.
