Whether there is any Integer solution to (x^2 + x + 2) + (y^2 + y + 2) = (z^2 + z + 2)?

$$(x^2 + x + 2) + (y^2 + y + 2) = (z^2 + z + 2)$$ has infinitely many integer solution triples (x,y,z). Here's one class of solutions: \begin{align*} x &= n\\ y &= \frac{n(n+1)}{2}\\ z &= \frac{n^2+n+2}{2}\\ \end{align*} where n is an arbitrary integer.

Is there any general method to find integer solutions to (ax^2+bx+c) + (ay^2+by+c) = (az^2+bz+c) ?

Need the formula in General? It is very bulky. Decisions are determined using the equation Pell. For some special case solution is always there and the formula is as follows. diophantine equations  Curves triangular numbers.  Mathematics Stack Exchange
