Hi I have a Vw lupo 1.4 16V Automatic with 88K on the clock Recent work includes: Brakes Full service I was driving along on the M1 around the 60-70mph mark when i heard/felt a small hiccup The car lost all power/drive and i was stranded on the hard shoulder. When the AA guy arrived, he advised the engine had no compression. I tried to start it a couple of times and figured this. AA took off the belts cover and the belts were fine. Then started taking out the spark plugs and found that spark plug number 2 had been squashed. Pretty stumped, parked the car up, not knowing how to progress this. Get a new engine, or do an engine rebuild My question is, how can the piston crash into the spark plug when the con rod is holding it? Is this a common issue? as anyone seen this before? Will my head be warped? seeing as how there was no belt jump, the head gasket seems fine ( correct levels in water tank) Would i be able to simply replace a few parts and get the car going again? Any help would be much appreciated Thank you
