    Ok, here we go… first of all I am a computer V geek and know very little about engines. I inherited this car and the 2nd time I drove it, it overheated on the highway because the radiator hose busted and now there is no compression in cylinders 1,3, and 6. I have no idea what to do! I hate to sell it and I really want it repaired but cannot afford to pay a shop 6000 to fix it. Help me please

    Suggest you perform a leak down test, How to videos are on youtube.
    If your lucky, all you have is a blown head gasket.
    Which will require partial disassembly of the engine and required tools and replacement parts.
    If not it gets worse from there.
    A warped head ( same as above but also including, requiring machining at a machine shop )
    A damaged head ( same as above but also requiring a replacement head )
    A damaged block (requiring a replacement)

    You will need a place to perform the work.
    A shop manual will come in useful.
    Do some research, watch some how to videos, get a better understanding of what is actually the issue.
