You may have compression on any cylinder where the valves happen to be closed, but you will not have compression on all cylinders. 1991 Sable does not have a 305 engine.

Why their is no compression in engine when you try to star?

Usually that is a sign of a broken timing belt or timing chain.

How can you tell if your timing belt is broken on a mercury villager?

If the timing belt was broken, obviously the engine would not run. If you crank the engine and the distributor does not turn, that would be a good sign.

The engine would not run. The engine would lack compression.

How do you determine if the engine has broken a timing belt?

Your valves will bend and the vehicle will be inoperable/undriveable. If the engine is a non-interferance engine, the valves won't get bent. You could remove the timing belt cover and see with your eyes if the belt is broken. A compression test will also give you a clue, the compression will be 0 in all cylinders.

What would cause no compression when starting the a car?

Either your timing belt is stripped or broken. In order to have compression the camshaft and valves need to be in time with the crankshaft. If it has a distributor cap then remove it and have someone crank the engine. If the rotor does not turn then the timing belt is bad.

2000galant is getting fuel and spark why does it not start?

If you have fuel and spark, then it would have to be a timing or compression problem. I could be ingnition timing or camshaft timing. Check to see if the timing belt has slipped or is broken. Pull the spark plus and check engine compression. A service manual should be available for this vehicle at any auto parts store for around $20.00. Good luck.
