How to fix.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok, the cylinder head needs to be removed and sent out to a machine shop to get fixed.

Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

I work on these daily and I have a different opinion than the cylinder head itself causing your no compression. I would highly suspect a bad lifter causing your issues.. Can you remove the valvecover and spin the engine over and tell me if the rocker arms move as much as the rest? If cylinder 3 doesn't move as much as the rest then you have a collapsed lifter and the head will need to be removed to replace the lifters.. I do them so often that I took a picture of the bad lifter and what it will do the camshaft. If your lifter looks like the one in the picture then you will need to remove the other head, remove the lifters and also replace the camshaft as well..

I hope this helps you and in the future feel free to request me for all your Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep needs..

Have a great day,

Brad

When you pull the valvecover and see the rocker arms not moving as much as the rest then you will know the cylinder head itself is not the issue...
