Spark plugs? Injectors dirty? Coils? Could be a number of things

If it something to do with fuel, you might want to change the fuel filter. If it doesn't make noise when you prime the car, it's your fuel pump

Mine has got the same fault,tried plugs and coil packs,fuel cleaner,swapping plugs and c/packs around but still no joy. Disconnected the battery today to try and get a reset but no luck. The garages are just guessing and want paying for a guess.
