Post New guy with problems--Cylinder 3 Misfire

Hello everyone I, am new to the forum and need some help.

I own a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser that had a cylinder 3 misfire. My first mistake was I, replaced the coil,wires,spark plugs thinking this was my problem. Put everything back together and fired it up......same problem.

Went to our local Harbor Freight and purchased a engine compression tester and found that the #3 cylinder was 0. Pulled the head and found a burnt exhaust valve on #3-- off to the machine shop and $545 later(new timing belt kit,water pump,head resurfaced,new valve). Put everything back together and it still has a miss at idle even if you were to increase the rpms it still sputters. It now has more power no check engine light but I can't seem to loose that miss?

Thanks in advance for your help.
