98 vw jetta 3
he is at a shop right now trying to get his car started but it wont start. the air box and intake manifold are warm but the exhaust and engine are cold. sounds like it has no compression and it keeps burping. pushing smoke out of the air box aswell. timing belt is spinning the right way and he is mobile so he cant get on here to check for answers. please if u guys have any ideas let me know so i can give him a call and try to help him out. im thinking maybe the timing is off a little? not sure which motor knowing him ide say a b7 or a6.
