Default Please help

First its not a acura but seek help immediately.

I have a 1997 Mazda 626 4 cyl.

I just had the timing belt/ and timing tensioner changed.
I paid the man, took the car and was getting some slight pinging. Went pay,
the turn the distributer about an inch and things were fine. Came home when
for run later that day and the no compression.....no power....spuddering.

Went back to mechanic had compression test done and the results were.....175
on cylinders 1 and 2.....and 25 on 3 and 4.
He tells me the head gasket is gone between those two valves low on
compression.

My question is would have it jumped the timing....and if so would this cost
the low compression in 3 and 4 cylinder?
its strange to me the car was fine then just as I have the belt changed this
happens.

Please help
thanks

It would make sense if the valve timing is WAY off that there would be
compression issues.

What did he mean by the head gasket being gone? That's pretty
suspicious. And the car should have purred right up at the shop, you
shouldn't have had to adjust the distrubutor either.

Sounds like they didn't put the belt on at the correct position. I was a
tooth off on an 82 Accord and it dogged it too. Hard to start,
sputtered... I didn't check compression though, just fixed the belt and
all was well.

Try and post on:

rec.autos.makers.mazda

You might get an answer from a MAZDA GOD...or someone who works on them all
the time.
