    Hello fellow VW owners.
    I have a 2008 VW Jetta 2.0Turbo engine.
    3 cylinders have 0 compression and only 1 cylinder has full compression.
    What could cause no compression in 3 cylinders?

    There is no commonality between them. I'm thinking it most likely a slipped cam belt or something causung bent valves

    My wife drove home from work and the next morning it refused to start.
