Hi and welcome, a couple of things to check ...

1/ is the air filter blocked .. (its on the RHS large can with a butterfly nut on top, check for dirt or oil contamination.

2/ check the hose coming from the bottom of the filter is not kinked or crushed (it goes through a hole on the chassis plate under the filter.

3/ check the plugs are the right type (hot enough)... personally I prefer the NGK ones (they seem to foul less) but its up to you champion etc

otherwise it could be air mass sensor not sure hot to check it maybe one of the RTE's might has some better ideas.

good luck
