I checked the spark plug for cylinder 3. I noticed that there is discolration around the hole, probably from some leakage. Is it hard to check the compression? Also is it hard to check fuel injector function? Thanks.
Compression is easy to check. You just need a compression tester gauge... it's just a little gauge with a hose and a threaded end with a rubber o ring on it that screws right into where the spark plug goes.. then you gotta crank the engine. the preferrable way to do this is by using a starter bypass and leaving your key in the OFF position, to prevent the vehicle from starting.

I had to turn to a local service shop in town (Cincinnati). They did a diagnosis for $80 and determined the problem to be ....... a nonfunctioning fuel injector. I decided to let them replace it with a new injector.
They did a good job with the diagnosis and even did a cylinder balance test after the repair. Nice job Spradlin.
