shoot some oil into #3 and recheck compression if it comes up, you got bad rings on that cylinder.

if it doesnt; is your oil milky or water-coolant got a slime in it or when the radiator is full and the engine running do you get bubbles in your radiator or are you loosing a huge amount of any fluid thats not leaking on the ground, you got a blown headgasket.

any of these would contribute to your dipstick troubles
