Hello! I find it very difficult to believe that the timing chain "snapped"...First of all it would have taken the fellow several hours of removal to view the timing chain...Not to mention the fact that an engine will not run without it...Based upon what you are saying, the repair shop is not a place I would have my vehicle worked on...The mechanic may have misspoke so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt...However,"hearing" that compression is lost is not a valid test...

There are quite a few reasons why an engine would run rough...Lets keep it simple and troubleshoot the problem without spending much money...Car was running fine when you parked it...Tires were slashed...Any damage under the hood?

First, I would bring the Maxima home...Then purchase a new battery...You'll need some simple tools...A set of metric open end wrenches (10mm) for the battery terminals as an example...Also a multimeter...Home improvement stores sell them for $15-$20...

Wow!...sound very weird,for me i think that place is a bad place to go with your car...plus the guy told you he would give you few dollar for your car! this is to weird!...i think that guy might just unplog few spark plug wire to make you belive the engine is gone and if it's really the timing chain it might happend when they tow it the only thing i will say to you, take your car to another shop as fast as you can for a double check and tell him your storry and what i told you... good luck! please give me some news of that bad story....lipak!
