Engine idles fine but when quickly accelerating engine will kinda stumble around then catch up. No codes and the oil light will slowly come on any suggestions as to the issue?

Fuel filter OK?

Do you mean the oil pressure light slowly comes on as the revs increase?

Just replaced the fuel filter And the tank looks clean. The fuel light comes on when it’s given revs and stays on but if it’s only idling it’s fine

Fuel light not oil light? Can't see the fuel light being involved unless you have a wiring fault.
Any vacuum leaks around the inlet system? Carbon cannister venting?

It will be 1 of the coils or leads. Seen this many times.
It will idle perfectly and then miss when put under load.
I have always swapped the coils 1 at a time to find the faulty one. Have been lucky sometimes and got it first go.
