Suspected slipped cambelt - 147 1.6TS
My Dad tried to start his 147 1.6 a few days ago, but it wouldn't start. It will turn over freely, but there's no compression at all.
Obviously, that almost certainly suggests that the cambelt has slipped or snapped.
Normally I'd assume that the valves will be bent and it's almost certainly scrap. However, given that it didn't fire up at all and only turned over on the starter motor, how much damage is likely to have occured? Is it likely to be repairable without spending a fortune, or would it simply be more cost effective to buy another car?
