    Default Engine misfiring

    Hi, last week I put some redex into the tank when I filled up with diesel, I may have accidentally used to much, it was juddering a bit but I just put it down to the redex, however iv used that tank now and filled up again thinking that would fix it, but it's still happening, most noticeably when I first start it, it's ruff lumpy tick over and can feel engine struggling, after a quick blast it seems to settle down but still feel it every now and then, thought it might be one of the injectors as have read about problems with wiring on here, any ideas or suggestions???

    Just to add, iv recently changed boost pipes egr and boost control sensor.

    Thanks

    Yes, there is an issue with the 3rd injector wiring on some 1.9's that causes misfiring/juddering.
