Does engine need to be replaced when there is no compression?
If there is NO compression on any of the cylinders, you've probably slipped the timing belt/chain. Just knowing that there is no compression is insufficient information to make a decision about replacing the engine. You COULD need to have the engine rebuilt, or it's possible that a valve "kissed" a piston and the engine is toast. Or... it could be something else. If it's just low compression in one or two cylinders, it could even be caused by burned or sticking valves.

What is the difference between spark ignition and compression ignition engine?
A spark ignition engine is a gasoline engine. A compression ignition is a diesel engine. basic difference between compression and spark ignition engine is , compression ignition is a diesel engine. spark ignition is a gasoline engine. diesel engines compress the fuel to a point where the fuel explodes, thus giving ignition gasoline does not compress to explosion, therefore it needs need a spark to ignite the fuel spark ign. is gasoline. comp. ign. is diesel. A compression ignition engine is typically a diesel. It compresses air so much that the heat from the compression is enough to cause the fuel to ignited once injected. A spark ignition engine is your average gasoline-burning car engine. It uses a spark plug to ignite the air/fuel mixture instead of relying on compretssion ignition. A compression ignition engine uses very high compression of the air to heat it self up and the fuel is injected into the cylinder which self ignites (a diesel engine is a compression ignition engine). A spark ignition engine uses a lower compression ratio and requires the use of a spark to ignite the fuel (a petrol engine is a spark ignition engine). Because the oils used for a diesel have a higher calorific value, they have a better fuel economy, They also do not need extra energy usage to keep the engine running, unlike the energy that is lost to power the spark plugs from the generator/alternator which is taken from the useful energy produced by the engine.

How do you check your compression on your engine?
Why there is spark plug in petrol engine and not in diesel engine?
Because a diesel engine doesn't need spark to ignite the fuel. Diesels are very high compression engines, and the high compression makes enough heat to ignite the fuel. To prevent the fuel from igniting prematurely, it is injected only after the valves have closed and the piston is near the top of the compression stroke. Once the fuel is injected, the heat from the compression ignites it instantly.
