TIMING?

1997 Oldsmobile Achieva

Engine Performance problem
1997 Oldsmobile Achieva 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80,000 miles

2.4L twin cam. The car started losing power then started misfiring til it would barely run like maybe it was on 1 or 2 cylinders and shaking violently. I bought a small diagnostic computer and it came up with code p0300, Multiple misfires. This could be caused by many things from skipped timing belt, bad cam sensors to bad gas. Where do I start to figure out what the problem is? Its my mothers car here on vacation and both our budgets are tight. Thank you
