Hi everyone. We have just recently purchased our 2006 Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI Titanium Hatchback. (It is under warranty for 3 mths, but wondered if anyone can give us any idea on what the problem could be before taking it back to the garage to be looked at)
It has covered 56,675 miles, with FSH.
When we start the engine (cold) its fine. When we turn off the engine and turn it back on again (when the engine has warmed up) we are experiencing a delay in the engine starting. It fires, but there is no throttle response but after a period of time (5 to 20 seconds) the engine comes to life, ticking over properly.
We have also found the engine noise to be quite loud, compared to our last mondeo (which we part ex'd for this one, that one was a 2.2 ST Estate 54 plate)
The last thing we are experiencing with it, from time to time, it is impossible to get in to reverse gear (no grinding or anything, it just locks, like there is no gear there for it to go in to!)
Thanks all for your help/advice in advance.
Sam and Mark.
