Customer Question
Changed head gasket on...

Changed head gasket on Daewoo matiz 3 cyl engine removed can pulley + belt to remove head. Installed everything engine wants to fire but sounds free spinning no compression? + didn't line up timing marks on pulleys when re installed. What should I do to get car running.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Daewoo. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

That is all thanx.
