You need to have somebody look at it that knows something about our cars. The timing belt is difficult to do and can be difficult to get in time if you don't know what you are doing.

How did you blow the head to start with? Timing belt failure all but never damages the head or valves.

Hmm did't i say this just recently?

"I would like to know the results of the compression test. The Compression numbers and there corresponding cylinders can tell us a lot what is going on. If all was told "Dealer told me car has NO compression" the dealership really needs a lesson in some better customer service!

Incorrect timing aliments with a head R&R is very common mistake many make, but without knowing a little more its hard to narrow down specific's that will better help you and not send you off in a thousand different testing directions."

Your choices in who works on your vehicle might need to be re- evaluated!
I would try to make it a habit to get all the important technical information about worked performed in the future in case the any event you need outside assistance with problems?

No spark is an ignition or electrical problem the head issues are a mechanical issues. Two different problems. Somebody may have not done the job repairing the initial problem correctly and caused more concerns?

Time to start fresh, get a new "qualified" mechanic and begin with a new assignment of your engine condition.

Hi all
I think the problems is that from timing chain side.Checked base timing, fine. Checked spark, fine. Checked fuel, fine. Put it all back together, and it cranked over really hard for a bit, then fired up. Ran like crap, died, and when I fired it back up, ran fine. The no-compression-spinning sound was gone.
