Question found compression test results....

well i had a compression test done a couple years ago on my 95 E36 M3, i couldnt find the receipt that had the results on it till today. the results are...
1 / 200
2 / 200
3 / 150
4 / 200
5 / 200
6 / 200

now i would assume there's something up with #3's results. what would be the next step in pursuing the issue? a leakdown test? and what else?

Also, since this test was done a couple years ago would it be better for me to re-do the test again now before pursuing any further?

i Dont know much about all this so im looking for some help/suggestions...please no criticism.

what is the problem to start with???

#3 cylinder might be low but still acceptable and will not cause any undue problems, UNLESS the fault in #3 is a compression leak into the cooling system.
