Erratic idling
2011 Vauxhall Meriva 1.7cdti auto

Just started idling rough rev counter jumps.
If I just tap the accelerator it goes back to normal for about 10 seconds then goes rough and jumpy

Lot's of possible causes , could start with the easiest first and try changing the fuel filter and see if that cures the fault . If that doesn't fix it you could try diesel injector cleaner additive to fuel .
