A compression check is a test that is done on a car by removing each spark plug one at a time and putting in a pressure gauge in its place. The engine is then spun over while the gauge is installed. Once the engine has reached its compression the guage will stop. The guage should stay in the same area without going down and as long as the compression readings are consistent accross all cylinders then the head gasket or rings should be fine.
