We have an 89 Camry wagon with 156000 miles on it, automatic, V6 2.5 liter engine, no history of engine problems. Did a top overhaul after the engine lost power on an uphill due to a cylinder not firing; seems to have been a long-term problem that was not noticeable (except for oil consumption) until the failure. Now that all the valves and both heads have been replaced, and every single part in the engine is exactly according to the book (haynes and chilton) we are not getting any compression at all. Timing belt has been checked; everything is exactly as it should be. The only reasons we've been given so far are timing issues, but we can't find any. Any other ideas?
