Car is splutting only when taking off from idle?

My 2005 Vauxhall Astra twin port has been spluttering and shaking only when taking off from idle. The car drives fine the rest of the time but taking off from say traffic lights always involves a good slow shake and splutter which is grim

Any ideas what this could be?Any help would be appreciated

    Put a set of spark plugs in the motor and clean the throttle body to start with. A mechanics scan tool will read the engine data to make sue all of the motors sensors are working with in spec.

    I would pull the OBD2 trouble codes and quit trying to guess what all is worn out in this 15 year old car.
