    You wont get a definitive solution just on that description mate.

    Many, many things can cause a misfire, or what feels like a misfire. Is it a misfire or is it lack of fuel? You probably don't know yet which is why it needs to have a full diagnostic ran.

    Misfires can often be diagnosed wrongly without having manufacturer specific diagnostics plugged in. From your brief description it could be -

    Coil pack
    Sensors (one or more of many)
    Fuel pump
    Fuel blockage

    To replace all the above you'll be over £1000, search locally for someone with Tech2/vaux com/opcom and spend £30 - £70 getting the fault pinpointed.
