Has it ever been hot? Could be a cracked head or blown head gasket or even bad valves on that cylinder.

I bought it from some lady and when I got it I noticed that the temp gauge was on hot but just figured no big deal but guess I was wrong and it hadn't been hot since I had it sometimes it go up towards hot for a sec or two then drops right back down but never no over heating and I can feel a slight miss when it's ideling a compression test was on at 75 on cylinder 3

75 is too low to run properly, your going to have to tear that side down to fix it. Bummer

So most likely it's prob a blown head,gasket or valve another words cause I just did the front and my mechanic was wondering why I wasn't doing the back also but I said I'm not rich lol but cool thanks a lot man I appreciate ur help just wanted a 2nd opinion
