does the engine sound like a diesel when hot ? if so sounds like dephaser pully needs replacing.
also have you changed the spark plugs ? these are common fault as is coil .
But before just changing parts , get it diagnosed correctly , will save you money in the long run.

Hello and welcome to the forum

As cockers has said if the engine sounds like a diesel when warm the it's probably the dephaser pulley.

Pencil coils can fail on these engines for a pass time.
