Hello this is my first post on this forum, my daughters 08 Lancer ES has 190k miles on it and last week she parked it no issues. The next morning I tried to start it and it always starts quick but I got that horrible familiar feeling when the starter sounds like its got no resistance same as my old Duster when it jumped time and fried motor. I then read this forum for days on the VVT and pulled spark plugs to verify with scope no interferance issues, so I got the timing cover off only to find chain is tight marks are TDC correct. No red triangle or stored codes, so we did comp test. Only 65lbs, 48, 40 & 25? I removed OCVs they were clean and tested good.The only other thing would be the rings all broke and... Nah... So correct me if Im wrong but even if the ECM was bad, the VVT returns it to max advance at shutdown so does the VVT have enough play that if it malfunctions it can advance or retard enough that a valve can start to open thus losing compression? A stretched chain wouldn't happen overnight and this car ran perfect and I assume no codes are stored because the last time it ran there was no problems. Also the factory manual says the marked timing chain links are blue so since these are orange maybe it has been replaced? Sorry for length of this anyones opinion on wus up is appreciated!
