Hello there, many different faults could case your 2002 Toyota Corolla to have a ticking noise, loss of power and now a no start condition. If a compression check was done and cylinder 1 was found to have no compression this is an issue. The most common causes of no compression are the piston rings, valve seals, burnt valves, and low oil. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your engine noise and make any repairs required.
