Hi I'm new to this forum and I'm having trouble with my engine originally we thought it was the timing chain and turned out it was a tensioner that had broke so we replaced it put it back together and it seemed like it was out of time so we tried to put it back in time without the tool didn't work then we tried with the special tool and then we did a compression test. It shows that it didn't have compression so we pulled the heads to find out that the valves aren't bent. My dad tells me that it could be the piston rings which at that point is too much for me and my dad to do. So we decided to get a new engine. Pick and pull is the only place that has an affordable engine, but they will not allow us to do a compression test before we buy it. And I know if the car isn't wrecked then it would have an engine issue.is there a way that I can find out if, say the tranny was bad? Or something else because there no where in the bay area that has that exact truck or engine for a decent price any help is very appreciated. (Please respond with helpful info, not telling me to junk it and get a Honda I can't afford it) btw it's a 2001 ford explorer 4.0 sohc v6 xlt 4wd and if you can tell me another reason to why I'm getting no compression if the valves aren't bent would be helpful too thank you
