    2012 Civic LX Engine turns over, but has no compression

    Hello, have a question. I have a 2012 Civic LX. I had started it and then it just stopped. When I tried to re-start it, the engine would turn over, but it acted like it had no compression. I have learned that this has a timing chain and not a belt. Can anyone steer me in a direction to look as to what the problem is. It has about 112,000 miles and was running fine. Thanks.

    When you say no compression, you mean the starter spun the engine faster/easier? Timing chains are better than belts, but they can fail. Maybe start with a compression test? I'm not a expert, there's others on this site that would know your engine better.
