2006 Ford Mondeo Zetec TDCi 130ps, N7BB engine.
replaced egr valve,map sensor, intercooler to egr pipe and turbocharger,full service 2k miles ago.
(believed to be) "black" smoke under acceleration and in turbo lag range heavy acceleration alot, turbocharger vanes haves seized in under a month of new turbo being fitted, being sent for repair.
help!! any ideas.
Sorry to hear you are having trouble
What part of the turbo is new? the cartrige, the manifold (the VNT mech is in the maniflod) the actuator? what part got damaged, the actuator due to siezed vanes - be specific "the turbo/ new turbo" could mean lots of things/ components
Have you read the codes? do you have a compatible code reader? (Ford has its own protocols, readers can have compatibility issues)
Unless you have very deep pockets i would stay away from main Ford dealers (i worked for one) and "diesel specialists" - they will be replacing parts left, right and centre, probably the 1st thing they will advise is new injectors (thats the way a "diesel specialist" thinks - injectors etc) before you know it you will have spent twice what the car is worth on parts
Look at the value of the car, then what has already been replaced (has the DMF, clutch and CSC been done?) and how much it will cost to fix,
probably best to fix it yourself - aquire a code reader and take it from there
You can always stick a solid, stainless steel EGR blanking plate on the car (about £4)
