    I am thinking maybe it just needs a service with new plugs etc... or could it be air flow meter ?

    If it's been a while or you don't know when it was last done a service will only do it good. Flat spots are fairly common on the 1.8s, a new air filter and the air box mod worked quite well for soothing them out for me.
