Think I need some one to service a diesel injector in Salisbury

I'm working 200 miles from home in Salisbury and my 147JtdM has started running rough - in 3rd it shakes the car noticeably in other gears it seems a lot less, more like a petrol engine 'missing'. There doesn't seem to be any change in economy but power seems down between 1500 and 2000 rpm it doesn't pull quite so agressively as it did a week ago but that could be my imagination.

If put Fiat ECU scan onto the car and there are no error codes but there is a big discrepancy between the values shown for Injector 3 compared with the others. I assume they should give similar readings hence why I want to know somewhere I can get the injectors serviced.

What I'd like to do is take the car somewhere that knows what they are doing, can look at ECU scan or whatever they use, diagnose the problem and, if it turns out to be an injector can get it dealt with by Friday.
Any suggestions welcome but I'm working to the north of Salisbury so it is slightly easier to get to that area than the south.

Give a man a fire and he's warm for the evening.
Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

Just a bump so it is seen again.

The symptoms changed over 3 or 4 days to more like an egr problem - lack of power low down and an abrupt surge of power at 2500rpm.
I originally cleaned my egr 50,000 miles ago (at about 30,000) so I tried again, it was still moving but stiff at certain parts of its travel and not returning as it should.
The valve itself had a bit of carbon covering it but unlike last time it was dry and came off with a toothbrush. The solenoid had some carbon build-up and was not free moving like it should be so I cleaned and greased it - high temperature coppa slip - put it all back together - result power is back, everything is much smoother and maybe quieter too but there is a hint of hesitation, exactly what I imagine an injector being a bit off would cause. Unless it gets worse I'm going to leave it until the next service which is only a couple of months off, I'll try to remember to report back here.

Final update the hesitation didn't go away and the vibration came back. The cause was the drive shafts! Mainly the nearside which has been replaced the offside is on a 6 week lead time and will be replaced ASAP. There could still be an injector problem but it is masked by the shafts.

Have you had the car remapped by any chance?

Sorry for such a delay, I just haven't been looking at the threads and must have ignored the emails.

The answer to your question is 'No I haven't had a remap', but I am thiking about it if only to lose EGR problems.
