Just letting anyone know if they have a similar problem, that I finally cleared up the mystery behind the "chugging". After getting loads of help here, several possible causes were put forward, the main one being to clean the EGR valve and gallery. This was done with no success. Also, the injectors were done.

The actual problem was a faulty Glow Plug relay. There was 6 amps going to the plugs instead of 8 ( even when the car was off!). The essentially caused a misfiring engine.

Hopefully, this might be of some help to someone else
