I’ll say it - that $uck$
I’m probably out of my element here; I don’t understand how you can achieve”no compression” if the valves are seating and no blow by??? Only other thing that would come to mind is head gasket issue, but I would assume they checked that as well. Could you get the same result from a bad glow plug or injector??? I’m rooting for something relatively simple, and interested to hear what the cause turns out to be.
