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.

How do you fix a miss at idle in gear on a 96 dodge caravan there is no miss out of gear?

Sometimes an engine will seem to idle more smoothly when there is no load simply because the flywheel is carrying the cylinders across anything that is misfiring. Check the compression first. If all cylinders are within a couple PSI of each other you probably don't have any bad valves. If you haven't replaced the plugs, distributor, rotor and wires for a while, that seems like a good next place. If it still isn't cleared up checked the injectors for anything that might be partially plugged.

What else could be wrong if 2 cylinders are misfiring after getting water into the motor through the intake after the spark plugs and ignition coils have been replaced and it is still misfiring?
