    Hi all. I have a citroen c2 furio, of 2004 with 130000 miles. After park it, the car never started again. When I switch the key on, the car looks that don't have any compression. I've tried to push it from a hill and started to have a white smoke from the bonnet. The timing belt is OK, so I don't have any ideas of what can be. Can someone give me any ideas of what can it be???? Thanks

    It sounds like fairly catastrophic cylinder head gasket failure, at this early stage......check out the coolant and oil levels first.

    The water is not mixed with the oil. and the levels are ok. However the car have too much oil.

    Why has the car got too much oil in, Ricardo? Was it overfilled or did the level mysteriously rise somehow?
    Either way, reduce the level to normal before trying again.
    Also, remove the spark plugs......my bet is that they will be covered in oil. If the level has been really high, there's a chance that it has been expelled into the air cleaner housing so check that too.

    Spinning over with no compression suggests something worse than too much oil. The timing belt may be intact but has it become loose and jumped a few notches? Tensioner or water pump failure?

    Head gasket failure would produce white smoke (steam?) from the exhaust.

    It could well do - and steam from the expansion bottle too hence the under bonnet smoke. However, the levels are all ok, and the OP seems to have gone anyway.

    It'll remain a mystery like the chap with the MGF and the allegedly locked up engine!
