    May be as quick as anything to book a VXtech2 check to see which sensor or whatever is playing up Rob.

    Could be the EGR valve that needs a clean. It may not be bad enough to trigger a fault code but maybe bad enough to effect the idle. I'd add a good fuel cleaner to a full tank of Diesel and boot it up an down the Mway in 3rd at 70mph for a good 4 or 5 mins to clean out the cobwebs.

    never look a gift hoarse in the chops!!, i cleaned my egr out, four weeks ago and i had a major engine miss-fire today, it was the egr slightly open and the valve/spring stuck/sticking that was the problem. it ran on tickover ok but when reved up sounded like a bag of ****!!!
