There is no way to be sure unless you get it scanned. It could be the idle valve or a vacuum leak.

Well the two big pipes that run into the intercooler have oil on them and one pipe has a little slit in it, do you think this could be the problem, its a loud nosie aswell thanks

welcome kcboy,

you need to replace the split pipe before you start looking any where else on the car.

i would say the split intercooler hose is your problem, its a common fault on the diesels.
