156 1.6 TS sportwagon engine troubles

Recently purchased the above and it wasn't in use for about a month since its MOT, but it did about 100 miles before the engine warning light came on and it started struggling in low revs and putting power down effectively. The first cylinder coil has been replaced and one of the sparkplugs which has improved the performance and it moves in low revs alot easier, but it still seems to be running off just 3 cylinders and all the other coils and plugs are working perfectly fine.

Any ideas on what else could be causing the problem?

Cheers in advance

When were the spark plugs last replaced?
There are eight in total, so changing just one is unusual!

(5-year/60000miles interval for the plugs)
