    why is your battery flat ?.......

    if the altonator isnt charging the engine will not run correctly

    check the plugs on the injectors for corostion and corect fitting ...

    could be a faulty alternator ask at your dealer to check if it comes within the batch of faulty ones, as to the rough idle it could be the swirl actuator bar fell off, take off the engine cover and look in-between cam covers to see if the shaped bar has come off!(common fault ) if so search thread's for ''how to fix inlet manifold for a quid'' best of luck!

    vx have just fitted a new alternator on mine free of charge as it was deemed a faulty part when fitted recalled most of the range maybe worth checking as for rough idling egr shouldnt effect it that much try unpluging it just to test

    wow a fault with the flywheel if your cars got full vx service history talk to them about good will a flywheel cant be tampered with unless youve had your engine out or clutch done so if its faulty its the parts fault get vx to pay atleast some of the cost
