Well done on passing your MOT always s good feeling.

With regard to your rough idling could be a number of thingd from a split intake hose to cam sensors it is hard to tell with such a vague description but it is not that uncommon a problem so if you give us a bit more info I am sure we can all help.

It's been on a computer and it says it's a electrical fault there is a small split on a hose I am getting that sorted it only does it for a few minutes from start up and then is fine the mass airflow sensor has been changed for a new one was going to change the lamba sensor but don't want to keep wasting money if that is ok any ideas many thanks its not indicating cam shaft sensor either

Well the spli hose certainly wont help, what code did it come up with when you had it hooked up to the computer?

Get the hose fixed first then if it is still misbehaving we can investigate further.
