      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Mk3 Mondeo 200 Y Reg 1.8 Petrol
  1. Hi, New to the forum. Always fancied a mk3 mondeo so I bought one a couple of months ago. Now have an issue and really need help. First thing on a morning the car fires up perfectly and I can drive as far as I want. Once I stop the car, it wont start again! It tries to but fails. Sometimes it will start and then seconds later fritters out. If I leave it a few hours it will start again. I have checked the following: Battery - Good Ignition leads - Good Crankshaft Sensor - Good I dont know where the camshaft sensor is or the MAF sensor. If anyone has pictures that would be amazing please! Car info: 1.8 Zetec Petrol 2000 on a y reg 80,000 miles No modifications I dont think its a fuel problem becuase when it starts on a morning its a dream to start and drive. If it was the altenator I would expect the car to die as I drive it along. If it was spark plugs I would expect to see the issue all the time, most of the time at least. One other point of note: From time to time when I turn the ignition on, all the dials whip right around to the other side before returning to their home position and then to their actual current position. PLEASE help, even if just with the location of those two sensors. Thanks in advance
