    Sounds very much like 3rd injector wiring issue.. Have a search on the forum for it. good thing is its not too much of an expensive repair

    Wasnt sure if this could be the cambelt as it needs changing mileage is 82k was going to get it changed this weekend, will any of these faults show up on a diagnosic test? im debating wether to try and drive the car tomorrow to the garage but will this do more damage? its 2 miles away.

    doubt its the cambelt... try firing the car up and then wiggle the wiring near injector number 3... if it then runs smoothly then theres your answer

    been out this morning and checked the 3rd injector wiring and the unit is loss compared to the others also i noticed it has the new blue unit not yellow as i have read, engine running fine no spanner light, strange! do you think it will be injector unit that needs replacing as it has alot more movement than the others. just going to see if i can get a diagnostic done but not sure if anything will show up but will advise them about the 3rd injector unit after if nothing shows up
    Thanks Al
