i just recently purchased a mondeo 2002 (51) 2.0 TDCI estate.
I seem to be having a few issues i want to get checked out.
When pulling away, if the revs go high the car pulls a bit, so i change to 3rd gear and notice some black smoke from behind... im new to diesels so dont know if this is normal?
I also had the glow plug warning light flashing on the dash, doesnt happen all the time, but does come and go when it suits. Also the car cut out as i was driving along.... maybe connected?
I also noticed the temp gauge moves a bit... it floats between the 1/4 and half way mark, doesnt go beyond half way though... again, it may be normal for these cars, but i wanted to check to be sure.
Finally... i have a front fog light bulb blown, just trying to find out how i get to it? lol
Any help would be appreciated. I love the car, but will love it better when its running 100%
