    Sounds like a coilpack failure or possibly the MAF (does the car run the same with it unplugged?), the first stop is to get the fault codes read.

    yes the engine management light will come on if you have a faulty coilpack. It basically is a yellow square. Best thing to do is buy one coilpack, start by changing one coil pack, take it for a run. If the problem continues, try the next coilpack with the new one. Hopefully you will sort it by this process.
