    Possible lambda probe fault. Also could be dodgy plug leads, MAF, or coil pack. No way to say for certain. Get it looked at by someone who has appropriate diagnosis software.

    Is it a big job and does it cost much to fix?

    Replacement coil is approx 60 each, if its one coil then about 80 all in charge. Should only take a few minutes to sort out.
