If the compression is bad, 3 options, replace the engine, fix the rings or valves, or live with it. If the compression is low, squirt a little sewing machine oil (LESS than a teaspoon) into the cylinder and check the compression again. If the compression goes up, bad rings, if it stays the same, bad valves.
If it's only shown the misfire code 3 times in the last 6 months, I would suspect a coil cap or wiring problems.
If the compression is fine, then it's going to be either an injector problem(I forgot this one earlier), coil cap wiring issue, or a bad coil cap/spark plug.
