Engine control system failure HELP

Hello everyone.

I hope someone can help me. The other day while driving my Alfa 147 on the motor way, engine control system failure light came up. Now every time I go uphill or drive over 50MPH I get this beep and engine failure light apart from that the car drives fine.

I took it for diagnostic and I was told that so many things come up, so to get started I need to change the number 3 ignition coil pack, exhaust mount needs welding, wishbone etc. I got a quote for 1080 however; this is stage 1 so this might not resolve my actual problem.
I hope someone can help me understand if any of the things I mentioned above is related to my actual problem. I happy to spend the money but my previous experience has been bad with another Alfa which I had to scrap after spending 900 with Alfa Dealers.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Did you ask the garage for the list of codes and what they related to ? .Some of what they have said has nothing to do with Engine light . Have you got somwhere else to take it just to make sure that what they are saying is the truth ? . I would be asking them for a detailed breakdown of the diagnostic and all the codes and also a full list of the items that they have recommended need doing
