Engine Check Light and DSC light on

Last night my engine check light and DSC light came on, the car hasn't lost power but idle is erratic and engine sounds noisy when revving. Its a 2010 2.2d 150.
Anyone any ideas?

UPDATE - The diagnosis is a stretched timing chain and an injector seal gone. The problem is at the moment is that the warranty company say it is not covered due to the chain degrading over time and not broken (although I have pointed out it is not a serviceable part or does not form any inspection schedule).
Mazda won't pay as not bought from a Mazda dealer.
So at the moment it looks like I will be paying the 1400 repair bill to replace the chain!!!

Well that sucks. I did see a video of how to change the chain... Looks like pain to diy.
