how recently have you done a full service??

Checked spark plugs and leads?

My car a while ago was messed up and it was just needing new leads.

Checked the ECU for error codes?

Check For Codes

also as yours is air flow metered, check all hoses for splits and leaks.

as said though it possably needs the ignition system servicing

Not nessesssserrrilly.

In winter months it's quite common for a bit of mayo to build up, especially if you're not doing long runs, or if the car isn't performing properly.

Yes, it may be HGF, but it might not be; I wouldn't assume the worst unless you have other symptoms too.
