falcon 2000 AU II misfires when accelerating quickly

Hi All!

Just a query about my Falcon Forte. Whenever I step hard on the gas she splutters and misfires a bit before eventually picking up. Other than that she rolls along pretty nice. I'm only a newby when it comes to mechanics, but I have changed the spark plugs and the air and fuel filters trying to fix this problem. However the splutter is still there. From what I've been told the Coil pack and the leads are what I should replace next. Does that sound right? If so is there a particular brand or product i should get, or just whatever the autoshop gives me?


Cheers Rod
