Alfa 147 tspark - valve issue?

(ALFA 147 tspark 2001 1.6L )100k on clock
last week was driving to college and the management light kept beeping constantly , the car felt very weird to drive,almost as if there was no "oomph" when i put my foot down.

was away for a few days and came back to sort the car out, the car seems to only beep EML + constant beeping, when over 2500rpm

i took it to a mechanic who hooked it up to a laptop and he switched the plugs about and the coils? long story short he said he thinks its either the injectors or a valve.....

he did not charge me and said to get a compression test done it.

just wandering what is a compression test, what is a rough price (Ireland) and if its the valve he said it could run into 600euro and might be best if its that to just put that money to another car.

any help appreciated
