2004 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 81,000 miles

I took my car to pep boys and they did a compression test. 3 cylinders are at 180 and number 2 is at 150. They also said that there is alot of oil in number 2. I've taken it to the dealer and they could not locate a leak and said that it should not be burning with this low of miles. Pep boys is recommending that I replace the engine, with other components for $2,500. I was wondering if they should be doing more test after reading some of your answers before going straight into replacing the engine?

Low compression on one cylinder normally points to exhaust valve leaking which requires a valve job not a whole engine
