Reving problem. Spluttering

The Mrs got in her car today had a little drive then it's start idling wrong. That problem went then it started spluttering when reving it up and driving along. I've tried cleaning the throttle body with no luck my next thought it plugs ht leads and coil pack. I don't really want to spend a any more money on it as it's costing me more money than its worth. Any ideas on it?

Mk2 punto 1.2 8v 2000

I'd start by cleaning the feeds to the coils, remove connectors and clean with electrical cleaner. Sounds like its firing on 2, could start car with 1 of the coils disconnected if thats the faulty 1 it will still start, (although that won't tell you if the coil is faulty) better than replacing plugs and leads on a whim

If the car could talk, it would be saying "owners, who'd have them?"

Re: Reving problem. Spluttering

Just had the exact same problem in mine. New HT leads, a new set of spark plugs and a new coil pack solved the problem. I paid 63 in total. I feel like that was an okay price for a new ignition system essentially.

EDIT: Glad you solved it.
