Engine Mechanical problem
1992 Mercury Tracer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 205000 miles

I wasn't getting compression. I removed the timing belt cover and saw that the cam sprocket wasn't moving when I cranked the engine, obviously the belt wasn't moving either. Is the timing gear on the crankshaft shot?

Do you
have the same problem?
