Hi guys new here in the forums. Picked up an 06 Tl with 119k miles on it.
After hitting a speed bump pretty hard the car shut off. Im good with tools and have experience working on cars, but Im stumped. I have spark, and fuel but when I did a compression check on the front 3 cylinder I have zero compression. I did not hit the oil pan and it does have correct amount of oil. I thought maybe some how the crank had broken but after putting a long screwdriver into the spark plug hole and turning the motor by hand i verified that the pistons are moving. The only other thing I think of is maybe valves are stuck open and I'm losing compression there. This is my first vtech motor and was wondering if the valves are electronically controlled.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you

I think you're on the right track. I'd pop the valve cover off and see if your valves are moving properly.
