my impreza

hi uys just wondered if any one can help, my car drives but only revs to 3.5 thousand then i feel my car missfiring and air gushing into the car itself, think im losing compression some how, a mechanic has told me its expensive to change but never told me what the problem was.

i have a lovely car with low mileage and despite a crash in icy weather this car has brought me nothing but trouble.

its a 2litre turboo r reg with 86 k on the clock and a full service history. just cant seem to get a break with it.

any help would be great or point me in a mechanics direction

i live in cornwall
