by all means try it, they are due for replacement. Check all the pipes around the engine for cracks and splits too. I reckon that it is more likely to be fuel starvation and (Pardon me, I am not familiar with Saxos) if it is fitted with a fuel filter, I'd start there. Assuming that the car is carburettor equipped, you may need to take it off and give it a good wash through with carb. cleaning solvent. (If you do this, the car may not run cleanly straight away, so drive it around for a day or two before fiddling with anything. A washed carburettor tends to run lean until it is "wetted " by fuel flowing through it.)Hesitation is often caused by loose or broken pipes altering the air/fuel balance.
