I'm assuming I have a valve outta whack. I started with troubleshooting the P0301 (0608) code. Did a compression test and number 1 was like 1.5, the other three were in the 150 range. So I'm assuming I need to get my valves reseated or replaced.

My question is: If this is the case,
1. how much work is involved in getting a valve job? Is this something a novice can do without too much trauma?
2. What should I expect to pay a mechanic to do it?
3. Is there anything I can do to reduce the cost that a mechanic will charge?

P.S. This is a Nissan 200SX se. 1997 5spd, 1.6 ltr, 16 valve.
