    04 Mini Cooper S, R53 engine. While driving the engine was running normally, then started running rough for a short time, and then quit. Subsequent inspection and testing reveals no (zero) compression on all four cylinders. Leak down test has air leaking into the crankcase and adjacent cylinders.

    Not sure what the question is, but is seems likely the mechanical timing likely has slipped or failed and bent a lot of the valves (or caused something else in the valve train). Will probably take some teardown to know for sure, but I’d be thinking of a replacement engine.
