📊 Diagnostics showed a mixture of active and historic codes which we documented, cleared and monitored and the coil light was found to be triggered by the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor. There was also a sporadic code for cylinder 1 injector pump/valve which could well be the culprit for the drivability issues present. In addition were 2 glow plug codes.

⚙️ On with the clean and the tell tale bass note dissipated as we progressed. As the engine rumble and shake subsided 2 things came to the fore. 1) a slight wobble at idle likely to be engine mounts and 2) a rattle when the revs dropped which was not present with the clutch depressed. Once complete it was much quieter, smooth and responsive again.
