Alfa 156

Cry Like A Baby 156 cough/misfire

hi, have read the below:

".....I stil noticed these tiny misfires that whould usually happen when acceleratig up hill in higher gear - they almost feel like little hickups around 2000 - 3000rpm" which then disappear from 3500 onwards.

My 2002 156 JTS has just started doing this, I've read that it could be any of: 1 electrical connection (2) bunged up injectors (3) coils? Car is worth 1,500 tops so am keen to try and resolve it myself if possible, or run it till it dies (noted re catalytic converter risk of fuel getting in). I have a specialist quote of 66 plus VAT and labour per injector to clean/recondition them, but might it just be an electrical/ECU fault?
