    As above check the plugs and coilpack, I went through a misfire problem a few months ago with my 1.8 sport and ended up being the ecu

    Here's the thread, take a little look through to give you an idea of the things to check as I changed a few parts

    I never actually posted up to say what fixed the car in the end but it was the ecu, picked mine up off eBay for £160 which is a bargain but let's hope your cars problem isn't that

    What year is the car? I think the older 1.8's have EGR valves, in which case this could be a culprit.
