Hi guys mondeo broke down before Christmas with the dreaded glow plug light, no limp mode just cut out completely, garage changed fuel pressure sensor with no effect tested injectors replaced one, now they are suggesting the flywheel is badly damaged and causing the injectors to try and balance the rough running (lumpy on tick over no smoke no prior running issues) due to the cost involved (2500 for both jobs)was jus after some advice if this is going to be the cure or things to come? Would be of great help.

find another garage! one who is a specialist in diesels, no point in changing every part under the bonnet to find the problem - which is what it sounds like they want to do.

[i]did the garage start with the basics like reading the codes, it could be anything from a sensor to injector problems,as suggested get to a garage who knows the tdci.[/i][i]check the crank sensor for iron filings this will tell you if there is a DMF problem.[/i]
