juddering and sluggish

ok im going to be as descriptive as i can so that your able to help as much as possible.

this has been going on for about a month now and both my wife and i have put it down to our driving!! however, in any gear and including pulling away, the car has no power, judders and seems incredibly sluggish then out of no where it picks up. Whilst driving along in any gear if the revs are below 2000rpm again it judders and feels 'weak' of power.

My initial thoughts are that it could be the spark plugs as the car is likely due for a service but am i being thick in thinking it could just be this or is there a deeper seated problem that im missing???

i look forward to your responses and wait in anticipation of your answers.

p.s. the cars a 1.8 zetec 2000 reg car.
