I was told my car has no compression. It was running and stalled, and would not start again.
Do you

Have you performed a compression test on it?

Before doing that disconnect the fuel system and the ignition ssytem. Then give 7 good cranks per cylinder and record highest reading. Lowest cylinder should be no more then 30% les then highest cylinder.

Add oil in cylinders foudn low. Does that dramatically increase the compression? Let me know what you find.
