Need a code read before anything else should be done, period . Watch your wallet . Either you have a money hungry mechanic or one that has no clue about the car and doesn’t want to be bothered .

Zero compression? Not likely. No compression basically means there are no pistons or the head isn’t connected to the block. Something isn’t right.

To start, the car needs fuel, spark, air, and compression. The garage you took it too should be able to verify these are present. None of the checks are difficult.
