it sounds like the head gasket is blown, unfortunately head could also be warped. and yes a garage is going to cost quite a bit

Use no sealer or treatment of any kind. To torque the head bolts you must go in a military rotation.Think of it as a spiral starting with one of the center bolts and working your way out to the ends. The torquing should be done in three stages, fist bring them down to 30 foot lbs. then going from the center again, this time in the opposing spiral, bring them down to 60 foot lbs. And lastly, bring them down to the specified tightness in your manual usually around 85-90 foot lbs. On the thrid sequence return to the original spiral direction that you started out with. Good luck, Dana

SOURCE: no compression in one cylinder
Timing belt slipped around cam pulley. Take off your timing belt cover and check the position. This would explain misfiring and compression loss. Stretched belt or missing cogs in belt likely culprit.

IF IT WAS OK BEFORE THE REPAIRS TAKE IT BACK TO THE SHOP.IF A FRIEND(MECHANIC)FIXED IT U NEED TO FIND WITCH CYLINDER IS NOT WORKING. CHECK COMPRESSION FIRST.IF COMPRESSION IS OK SWITCH PLUGS & COIL W/CYLINDER NEXT TO IT.IF THE MISFIRE DOES NOT MOVE THEN DO THE SAME THING W/ AN INJECTOR.THAT SHOULD HELP FIND THE PROBLEM
