My C220 CDI has started idling very roughly, it shakes the whole car. It is intermittant at the moment but getting worse, its like the engine has gone off balance. The engine starts ok and pulls ok, revs ok and doesnt even stall, it just idles like its trying to jump out of the engine bay. HELP !!

Why Sam ? i havent checked, it is it important? i thought it might be going off an injector, its like it had gone out of balance but isnt sounding like its off a plug. Just checked the belt, its ok SAM.

it propbably is an injector. a star/das smooth running test would probably find it.
