I would be interested to find out what happened when you find out whats wrong with your car also...Good Luck
My mechanic checked the timing......still in time, just 5-10 lbbs. of compression 4 cylinders.

Has he spayed oil in cylinders and retested for compression? It called a wet compression test.

If its does not increase compression with a wet test I suspect a head gasket could have failed. I see that car has had some failures of compession loss due to head gasket fail in a site that we track commom failures of specfic car makes.
