Ok, I brought it to a mechanic.
He says three cylinders have low compression. The one not firing reads at 60, 2nd at 95 and the 3rd at 120 and tells me the engine is junk and needs to be replaced.
He quoted me at 600 for the engine and 500 for the labor. I, however can pick up an engine for $250, is his assessment correct and is $500 for to put the engine in fair. It's the exact same engine using the transmission and ECU of the old engine as my car is an auto and the other engine is out of a manual.
