Re: i cryin right now...

Check the timing belt, this happened to me merging on the highway once. If the timing belt broke, the intake or exhaust valves may be open on your cylinders, therefore causing the low compression. Water hit the ground when mine broke. I also thought it was the end. If you blew a headgasket, the water will usually go into one cylinder, not all 4. Also check for water in your cylinders by pulling a spark plug. My bet is the timing belt. Pull the valve cover and check.

k...the timing belt is fine...imma pull the head and replace the gasket (being the cheapest fix at the moment). my clutch is going out...i i said it died when i pressed in the clutch.

thanks for the motor site...a new motor right now is a last resort.

noodle: yup like 2 months ago...

my head bolts were pretty loose...all of them were oily but the 4 middle bolts. they were super dry...i dont know if that bad or not. i didnt see water in the oil but it smells like it. i pulled the head and the pistons look fine, there is no play...but i do think the head could be warped and some valves may be damaged...so i dont know what im gunna do....
