Hi there.Welcome to JA.comI hope I can be of help to you today, but first I just need to ask a couple of questions so my answer will be better sourced.Can you tell me if the car was playing up at all while trying to start before the complete none start?Did it start to play up while driving at all?I can see that you did a compression test and i think it is a typo that 3 is lower than the rest. Correct me if I'm wrong.I look forward to your replyThanks in advanceNathan

It seems that the timing has jumped when the serpentine belt has got wrapped around it. I have seen this before on a passat where some of the belt got into the timing cover and caused the timing belt to jump a few teeth and caused the engine to hit valves. There was no damage to the timing belt itself. The fact that you are down on compression on no.3 does mean that valves have been bent but it doors not necessarily mean that it will hit valves on no.1 because they are doing as different part of the sequence. Now if you were to turn the engine over by hand, you may find that it does get a bit tight 3 out of 4 half turns because it won't have the compression there.Another thing. The codes that you have are to do with the camshaft position sensor. This or the wiring may be damaged from the belkt shredding, but it is more than likely that because the top dead centre from the crankshaft sensor and the one from the camshaft sensor are not aligned it is throwing these codes up as as fault. Once the timing is corrected these results s

Thanks Nathan,So most likley, the head needs rebuilt?
