they may have done a relative compression test which is done electronically by measuring the RPM drop of each cylinder when the test is running, but not sure anyone but the dealer can do this test. This low compression you mentioned is not good, suggest u run the test yourself, the compression test guage kits are cheap u can buy them on line for about $25 US, also tank added chemicals don't do anything in the short term and noting if the injector is badly clogged, do u understand what I mean about a high pressure factory cleaning? it is quite a different animal.

Check water pump and make sure that its working. Should be circulating antifreeze in radiator and in engine. You can also check and the head gasket and make sure its NOT blown. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

These engines are know for leaking head gaskets. A good quick test for this is fill the coolant tank to the top with the cap off. Start the engine. If the the coolant blows out of the tank, you have a head gasket leak.
