Hello. I'm new to this group and hope you all can help me out. My 95 Toyota T100 with 3.4L v6, it sat for two years and was running when parked. When I tried to crank it after sitting it sounded like no sound I have ever heard on an engine before...almost like starter was turning over but engine wasn't and it wasn't a very fast cranking either. My first thought was timing belt broke but it wasn't. In fact both cam marks and crank mark was perfect on mark with #1 at TDC. I then did a compression check and had nothing on any cylinder, zero! Never had this kinda situation. I have rebuilt older V8's like a 318, as well 2.2L and 2.5L front wheel drive engine. I haven't rebuilt a double overhead cam v6 before though. I was planning on doing a leak down but don't have the tool but can borrow one. I did check both compression gages and they are fine. One had the quick connect so I decided to connect to 20psi regulated air to see if I could hear the air and on LH side I couldn't hear air going anywhere on the 3, on RH side I could hear air going into the plenum on all 3. I still, even if the RH side head gasket is blown or intake valves stuck....I don't understand why I still have no compression on the other head? I hope this makes sense. I did crank over for a while and put oil in cylinders. Any suggestions or if you know what's wrong, please let me know. I have invested way too much in truck not to fix this. Thank you in advance.
