every time i start of driving it starts spluttering and coughing untill you pick up some speed, out on the highway its fine, but as you accelerate it sounds (and feels) like its missing in a cylinder, ive tried replacing the spark plug leads that helped a bit, it defintly feels stronger (one lead had an rating of 21,000Ω!!) and the plugs and dizzy cap them selves are less then a 8months old.

i have also look at the fuel injectors and they seem to be doing there job so what else could be wrong with it?

any help would be appreciated :)

Could also be MAP sensor (on firewall, passenger side).

Trace vacuum hase back from sensor to manifold and check tubing intact and connected to sensor and manifold.
