So your mechanic diagnose cylinder #5 as having low compression and it is probably fouling the spark plug. While I can't say if he is truthful or not, I have to assume he is correct. So it is now up to you weather you want to spend the money to rebuild the engine and correct the issue. On a 2001, you might want to trade it in for something newer at this point.

go somewhere else...even though a car can run without a catalytic converter it is a federal regulation to have them as part of the exhaust system. second the oxygen sensors are probably being thrown off because its seeing the same readings. there are usually 2 oxygen sensors one before the catalytic converter and one after. the one after adjusts the air fuel mix based on the exhuast gases after it goes through a catlytic converter. i highly suggest going to another mechanic
