06 reg 1.4 lost power and has a misfire

Help desperately needed please.

Got a call from the wife earlier broken down with kids in the car and a boot full of shopping….

Basically the car was running fine, but she noticed it sounded a little odd as she pulled up and parked.

It started ok later but juddered when moving and when came to a hill it didnt have the power to get up it.

I had a look and cant find any obvious faults but the engine fault light is on.

No belts broken. No fluids lost. Oil level and colour fine and not pressurised when took the filler cap off.

I started it briefly and it starts and runs, but sounds like its running on three cylinders.

Any ideas, as i cant afford to splash out a load of cash and its due an mot and service anyway, which wont be cheap.
