Car coughs and splatters when driving in low gear mostly. Its like its starving for fuel. Have put in new fuel pump and have cleaned injector. Could it be coil pack or leads? Im not sure which to try next

You should have started with the basics such as spark plug and related component first.

The coil pack or spark plug wires are common causes of misfiring and ohmming out the wires should give you an indication if they are bad.
