Hello and thanks in advance for any answers!
My BA is giving me soooo much grief i could cry :(
Its idling really high
Stalling
engine is missing i believe

These are the things ive done so far:
Reset ECU
Brand New Coils (same issue with news coils as to old)
NGK spark plugs - only 20k kms old, i have checked them and tested some working Denso ones i had with the same outcome.
I have insulated the ignition wires just in case it was arching somewhere
Injector cleaner has been run through as well recently
checked for any oil leaks - looks ok
Fuel filter changed 20k kms ago
Car has never been overheated since i have owned it
Serviced every 5-8k kms

And Ive just taken the throttle body off this evening for a really good clean and i'm going to put a new Gasket tomorrow as i think that the old one possibly had a leak. Thats the only thing i can think of.

Am i missing anything does anyone know what it might be?

Ive recorded a little bit and uploaded to youtube so you can see and hear what its doing.
This all just happened out of the blue, i have been skipping for a while but i thought it was the coils but it must be something else :(

Any advice would be much appreciated!
And yes i know it needs a clean :) haha

Thank you!

seems like u have a couple issues there mate

id start by cleaning out the air filter also wouldnt hurt to throw in a new one if its filthy make sure the connector to the air intake is plugged in. also does the barra run a dizzy? if so try there but if all fails may be time to call in a pro

What I don't understand with some people on here is there lack of common sence.

A normal person would take that down to a mechanic ASAP.

I don't think it's a minor fix up

Agree, and no one called him names or personally insulted him when he wanted to do his own auto transmission fluid flush/service.
