      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.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Just purchased a Y Reg MK3 TDDI estate which hesitates under acceleration , also when you accelerate its very noisey then it will hesitate and the engine will quiet down, its not as loud as diesel knock but rattles , is this the beginning of injector failure? there is a fair bit of diesel sitting in the pots on injector 2 and 3, Also ive changed the fuel filter which made no difference, it will start fine but if you leave it for more than a day its a real pig to start Any help would be great

  3. At the back of the engine where the exhaust manifold is, there will be a wire going to a sensor screwed into the manfold itself, I believe you will need a 22mm spanner/lambda sensor socket to remove it. ford want upto £130 for this but you can get it for £30 locally and takes 10 mins to change
  4. I agree it could be spark pugs or leads , if not worth checking the lambda sensor as it may be covered in unburnt fuel from the missfire.
  5. Mondeo Tdci Issues

    I assume theres no way of finding which it is without going through them 1 at a time ? ive changed the cam and crank sensor and had it plugged in again and still get PO251 Injection Pump A Circuit Malfunction Ive alook around the engine and there looks like diesel sitting around the bore of injector 2 , theres not alot but would that cause this fault? its not leaking from the run off but asif the copper seal isnt sealing anymore. its done 129000 and the engine seams abit sooty like your old coal fire chimney is it ment to be like that Any help would be kindly received
