Help Shaking car, no power


I have a 06 1.9jtd GT. Recently I had to replace the fuel tank due to a leak. Its been fixed and now, and 1000km later my car yesterday decided to run on 2-3cyl and its shaking, it has no power. One can put the accelerator flat to the floor and achieving maybe 85kmh. It also revs vearly slowly and not even above 3000rpm. Also my fuel guage jumps up and down the entire time. Does anyone know where to start to look?

I had similar symptoms as a result of a failed injector, so could be worth hooking up to Fiat ECUScan or Alfadiag to see if thats the issue?

Yep sounds like a failed injector to me too...

Take Engine cover off and check for oil around the injector wells, front of the engine...
