Ouch man! Not good compression numbers.

What kind of car, mileage, year etc.

With those numbers, I would replace the engine. Could also be your compression rings are not sealing properly.

Also a heads up, there's alot of additive treatments out there that claim to restore compression etc. I'm not one who's big on additives but that's just me. -Op-
