Default laymans method of diagnosing a fuel injector

like the title says? is there an easy (ish) method of me being able to see if any of my fuel injectors are not working as they should?
trying to find out for myself what the issue might be with my car. The injectors have been tested and cleaned after one was found to be throwing a faulty pattern (so the garage tells me)
id like to be able to back this up with some invetsigation of my own...seeing as the problems im having (rough idle, stalling from idle in cold weather just after start, pull-back during low acceleration) are still there; along with my trusty depolution light! LOL!
read a few forums suggesting you can check them by removing connections along the coil pack and noting idle speed dropping. and also a couple suggesting testing the OHMS across the connectors. but have no idea what they should read as standard.
is there a laymans method i could try my hand at? im no mechanic but quite capable of a little bit of stuff.....

Peugeot Planet should do the job.

yeah i know that but i dont have access to it anywhere close
thats part of the issue; neither I nor the garage doing the work under warranty has planet. which is annoying but thats just how it is. my cloest so far is in Peterborough which is further away than taking the car back to the garage.
i was just trying to sort something out that i could do in my driveway just out of my own curiosity.

Best thing you can do is find someone close with Planet willing to come to you. Put your location in your profile and it will make it easier for someone to figure out distances.

You can check with Planet an injector that is not working at all , but a injector that is still working but not up to strength will be very hard if not impossible to see on planet , leak off test is the best way.
