Could be a problem with:

1.Fuel Filter

2.Spark Plugs - Leads or Dizzy cap and rotor arm.

3.Gearbox - Clutch Problem.

4.Accelerator Cable sticking (REALLY BAD)

But that's about all i can think of too be onist does sound like a fueling problem happend to my dad's volvo....

Check the above and you should find your problem....

Sounds like my problem, whcih seems to be the crank shaft position sensor. you may want to phone around and see who can do a code read of the ECU the cheapest (some will do it for 20 pounds, MGR likely to be around 60, some will do it free). Takes a couple of minutes and will let you know if its anyhting like any of the sensors etc.
