it could be a stuck open egr valve, remove and clean the valve and see if things improve.

Update as usual mondeo would not start so checked out the forum and some people suggested that either the camshaft sensor or the crankshaft sensor so today i changed both and car is still struggling to start.anybody got any other ideas i have pulled out the rest of my hair out.many thanks now baldy michael.
