Can't tell you why but to start need to know if there is spark coming out of the coil, and if there is fuel pressure. May need someone to look at it.

Oh ok could it be to do with spark plugs?


I don't think that would solve your problem. If the spark plugs need to be changed, then it needs a tune-up and a good going over. (serviced) I'd start by having the fuel pressure checked. Your symptoms fit. May have a bad fuel pump.
