Engine is no longer dead...... strange story but i will try to explain with my poor english

Car was used for two years only in short distances , 4 km in one way and 4 in another way anyway so there is result....

we replaced both sensors -camshaft and crankshaft but engine is still dead so we decided to check engine compression and...... 1 cylinder 1 bar , 2 cylinder 3 bar , 5 cylinder - 8 bar , 6 cylinder 5 bar , 7 cylinder , conclusion ... engine is dead but mechanic told me that he had many causes where cars were used on short distance and losted compression just like that coz over grease cylinders. So.... i decidet to try turn engine on again and......... engine is on then immediately i push gas pedal down ..... 3000 rpm , 5000 rpm i keept engine like this for about 20-30 minutes and everything is smooth and ok . anyway there is no longer crankshaft sensor error code afted sensor replecament.

we tested and was ok

anyway , again today car didnt want to start , again camshaft error and we found out that under hood engine computer plug was dirrty , something like green oil , hard to describe it but we cleaned with special plug spray and engine is like new . engine computer had no proper connection with camshaft sensors , thats it there is no longer error code . It was so simple but took around 5 hours to find out

problem solved
