  3. hi is there any signs of oil or water usage, you can also check the oil cap for a white residue which can indicate a head gasket failure, i had a 2.0l mondeo which had this problem and once i changed the head gasket it was fine, now i would say on the mondeo mk3 they , dont had a mass flow air flow meter unlike the mk 2's have, my v6 had one of these and that was the problem for that not been able to rev when it was stood it was fine but when the car was in motion it would rev slowly but when you gunned it it would backfire and die, it would re start ok. you can get a engine specialist to check your water with a special die that checks for head gasket problems some garages may also do this but very few where i live do this. the best things to do is check your spark plugs are working ok and leads etc as this can also cause a similar effect. hope this helps, without seeing the car i cant really help
  4. hi to anyone who reads this im after a mondeo 1.8 Duratec HE 16v Engine to fit my mondeo 2001 y reg i have tried everywhere round to where i live for an engine i would repair mine but have a hole in the side of the engine so if anyone just has the cylinder block without head or complete engine available i would be really really greatful if you could let me know i need my car really soon as i have got my mums wedding coming up and the car was supposed to be getting used for the wedding please please help!!
  5. i bought this car a couple of days ago, from a car garage saying thats the car was in good condition but the engine was hard to start but did start but was rough, upon getting it home via recovery we started to do some checks to find the problem first of all we did a compression test and found this cylinders 1, 3, 4 had 200 psi of compression but cylinder 2 had zero compression by this we was puzzled, we then proceded to remove the rocker cover to see if it had dropped a valve on No. 2 cylinder we found nothing still puzzled by this, we thought for a while and then my mate turned the engine over and as i looked down cylinder 2 sparkplug hole i noticed the piston wasn't moving but all the others were!!!!. i then put all the top of the engine back toghter then moved onto removing the sump upon doing this i was shocked to what i found, the previous owner has revved the engine so hard the conrod on cylinder 2 has snapped and smashed a hole the size of 4 inches in length by an inch wide in the rear of the engine block and has also smashed the bracketing that holds the crankshaft and pistons in place, its lucky it only needs a new lower block as the top is ok, so be warned dont over rev your engine or this might happen to you.
  6. we have had a ford since 1996
  7. the chips alter the fuel ratio and mixture in the ecu it does the same in both petrol and diesel engines, this in turn increases the fuel amount into your engine which increases your bhp making your car quicker and more responsive, i hope that helps. basicall its a change in the fuel delivery
  8. depends, is this petrol or diesel if its petrol its at the rear and is held by 2 nuts on the wiring which can be tricky to get to but is best got at from the underneeth and 3 bolts to the engine it should drop down from there getting to the bolts can be tricky, now if its the diesel the starter is at the front you need to support the engine from the underneeth and remove the front engine mount which can be a bit tricky then again its held by 2 nuts on the wiring and 3 bolts to engine. i only know this as i have done a few my self.
  9. hi and thanks we have found the problem, we did a compression test today cylinders 1 - 3 - 4 are reading between 180 - 200 psi and No. 2 is reading zero the previous owner has ragged the engine and its dropped a valve so were having it repaired tomorrow, all been well it should be fixed fairly soon, I HOPE
  10. hi i have owned a v6 mondeo and with a full mot and 4 months tax i got 400.00 it also depends on the cars condition to the price you get, i have just bought a mondeo 1.8 2001 mk3 for 600.00.
  11. hi if its anything like the td models from underneathof the car there should be an adjuster on a 10mm on mine it was located just to the right of the crankshaft pulley and it is a bit awkward to get to, and it does depend what engine you have in it for its year.
  12. hi i have reciently bought this car, it has the duratec HE 1.8 SFI (125ps) engine in it, the problem is the car is very hard to start and when it does start its running on three cylinders could this be the head gasket thats gone and if it is how big a job is it to be fixed if not ford has mentioned it could be the coil pack. there is no ECU light on thats saying its an electrical problem. please help as im baffled of what to do as one persons saying its one thing and another person is saying its some thing else many thanks
