My 08 had been losing power on and off for a month. Mechanic checked it out and found low oil following a change. No leaks and no noticeable burning. Yesterday car lost power never came back. Limped it to mechanic and he says number 5 cylinder bad! Big $$$ to fix. What do you think? 144,000 miles

echoing what 01 said, you need a compression test (on all cylinders) and the #s for them.
