A coil problem would tend to give a permanent misfire and a failed sensor would normally cause a warning light on the instrument cluster. Unless you know the service history, I would start with simple service items like plugs & air filter - both these items get left in for ages these days and if a sequential main dealer service regime was disrupted, these items can often get overlooked and left in far too long.

Cam sensor is entierly possible. Failure only

logs a ' silent' fault code so no warning lights.

Get the codes read at a garage or some one that has carsoft or inpa.

There may be a member near you who can help, whereabouts are you??
