If the door is framed out then you should be able to put a pre-hung door in. Measure the size of the opening from the inside of stud to stud. That will give you the rough opening dimensions and you can match that up at Home Depot or wherever you go to get the door.
When you do get the door pick up a pack or two of shims, you'll need them to get everything square when you are installing the door.

If it is the door from the garage into the house --it must be a fire rated door---

Give us your location and someone here could look up the rating for your area--

Building Standards Department

This is your local code enforcement office--they have the codes in a PDF file --which I can't open with this computer---

A fellow Canadian may know the fire rating off the top of the head---so read--or wait---Mike----

This must be an exterior door (i.e. air tight) application and must meet the burn time requirements.
