    Cam and Crank Sensors will not cause bad compression in 3 cylinders. Do a leak down of the cylinders to see why there is no compression, maybe some valve were damaged or worn out. May the head was cracked. Was it pressure checked by a machine shop and properly re-surfaced?

    Have the brake switch checked/replaced. When the brake switch goes bad the car wont start.
