    Default surging engine on 2.0dti

    My 2.0dti 03 plate has been running rough today,seemed to be losing power/misfiring.When i stopped at lights the missfire was worse on tickover so held revs at 1000 and found it kept surging to 1500 and back.Been on internet and found it could be leak off pipes(changed 6mths ago),injector seals,egr fault,thermostat or fuel pump.
    Anyone any ideas or will a fault reader tell me anything useful even though spanner light hasn't been on.
    Get the feeling this is going to cost me.

    Default diagnostics

    You are probably safer goin to someone with a diagnostics scanner as you will find that people on the forum will tell you everything that you have already read elsewhere and I dont mean any offence. You will get a code starting with PO and if whoever does your diagnotics cant tell you what the code is for type it into google. But someone with a good code reader should be able to tell you straight away what it is. Fingers crossed it aint your fuel pump
