Good Morning, i wonder if anyone can help me, i have a mk 1 mondeo, 1996 N reg, 1.8 petrol saloon.
In the mornings it starts fine but will not pull, it feels as though it is misfiring or a lack of fuel, i have put new plugs and leads on but have had no joy. I first thought it might be due to being cold but it also done it a little whilst doing 65 on the A14, i thought it might be fuel starvation but i read on another website that it wouldn't be that, i also have a little rattle coming from the engine bay, it sounds like a bearing on the cam belt pulley but i have also heard that that could possibly be an inlet manifold problem which would also cause the fuel like problems. My next idea was to fit a new fuel filter and coil pack but if anyone can help before i do this i will be most grateful. Thank you very much

i would start with a coil pack

i thought that but after reading about the possible inlet manifold problem i did think again as the rattle they described sounds the same as mine

could be the cat, as its warming up its breaking down, when was the last time the exhurst was changed???

just thought i would update, i have now fitted a new coil pack, and have noticed a massive improvement,,,however, it still felt as though it was "choking", having driven a car with a manual choke, i would say it felt like the choke had been left on after it was warmed up. Possibly a choke prob,,,,any ideas??

Go with replacing filters, Air, Fuel and Oil. These will probably improve the performance greatly...
