  1. badman

    I bought a 2014 ( 64 plate ) Mondeo 2.0l tdci Business Edition and the owners manual does not show anything on the sat nav /radio unit that is fitted. I think it is a Ford/Blaupunt from what I have been told. Can anyone help in identifying the unit and where can I get full information on the unit ?.
  2. Mondeo Diesel Cold Running Engine

    check that the water pump is working correctly, I had same problem with my mk3 and my local Ford dealer was baffled. I had the car in at my local independant garage and they said it was likely to be waterpump. when they took the water pump off the drive splines had sheared .
  3. I had my fault code reader connected and in "live read " mode when it happened last but no fault showed on display. I do not get the problem every time I accelerate hard just most times!
  4. I have had the glowplug light start flashing and car has gone into limp mode but there is no fault code stored in the computer so i am at a loss what to look at. I noticed that when engine is switched off then restarted some time later the flashing light is out and engine has power, if driven without a heavy foot on accelerator it will drive ok but as soon as accelerator is given some "welly" the car returns to limp mode but the glowplug light does not always come on. Anyone have any ideas what the problem is?
  5. Hi.I have a Mondeo 2,0l tdci 2006, yesterday it overheated whilst I was out and the Ecu cut power. Called breakdown service and they told me it was almost certainly the thermostat stuck closed.Today I brought a new thermostat and fitted it, topped expansion tank up with antifreeze and started engine. After running on tick over for about 5 mins the temp gauge was showing at about 60deg but there was no heat from heater, running at about 2000 rev for a further 5 mins got temp gauge showing normal temp but still no heater working. I tried squeezing all the water pipes that are accessible to see if any air was in them but made no difference. I took car on short drive, about 1 mile from home and the temp gauge went to max cooling fans were on and when I got home the rad was hot at both end,no loss of water but the heater pipes in engine were both cold. Can anyone help?. Also when I was replacing the thermostat I noticed a pipe was flopping about when I found where it was from it is a valve of some sort on front of engine above the water pump, it has something to do with the EGR system as it has 3 pipes on the body, 1 goes to EGR valve, 1 goes to the brake servo via a non return valve and the 3rd pipe disappears under the battery tray, The pipe that goes from brake servo has broken off the valve body. Does anyone know what this valve is called and how much they cost. Thanks.
  6. Happy Birthday Badman!

  7. Hi, Yesterday I replaced the rubber hose from intercooler to egr valve as it had split. on completion I started the engine and noticed the engine warning light did not go out, I checked that all the electrical plugs were connected ( I removed the plug on egr valve and the one on plastic bend below radiator ) they both seem ok but I did find I had forgot to reconnect the vacuum pipe to egr valve. when the pipe was reconnected the warning light still stayed on. Does this need to be reset via fault code reader / computer or does it reset itself when faults have cleared? Any help on this will be appreciated, Badman ps. the car is 2006 2.0L estate with electeic egr valve
  8. Noise From Front Wheell/hub

    The noise becomes audible @ around 15/ 20 mph and sounds like a rumble but it also sounds as if something is catching. The noise is almost inaudible when steering is straight ahead, it becomes slightly worse when turned to right but becomes quite noticeable when turned to left, it can also be felt through steering wheel at that point. The noise does not get worse on full lock, as would be expected if C.V was worn.
  9. I have a problem with my 2006 2.0l tdci estate. Last year I had 4 new tyres fitted in October, the front offside one has worn so bad I have just had to replace it. I had the tracking checked just after the new tyres were fitted and it was ok. I have now noticed a noise,I think it is from the offside wheel, when the car is moving forwards and either left or right steering is applied it seems to "rumble". Could it be the wheel bearing ?, Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. I have a 2.0l tdci Mondeo estate titanium 2006 reg. It has developed a problem with the reversing lights-they wont work and its driving me mad trying to fix it. I have checked the bulbs and they are proven to be ok, I've checked the fuse and that is ok. I have removed the plug on the reversing light switch and checked that the switch is working ok-it is,I've checed from the plug down the Green/white wire there is a circuit through the reversing lamps, on digital resistance meter I am getting about 1.5 ohm from plug to ground. I have checked that there is 12v at fuse holder-there is, and i;ve cheched the other side of fuse holder to plug -ok, so it should work but it wont. Has anyone had this problem or similar or can offer advise I would be extremly grateful.
  11. EGR Clean

    I think that I have this problem on my 2006 mondeo, but is it usual to loose all power on hard accelaration? . I get smoke when I give a bit of quick acceleration but if I floor the accelarator the engine will start to go but then loses power and the "glow plug light " comes on, if I turn engine off and restart it is back to normal.
  12. Problems With Egr Valve

    I have read in these posts about this "Forte "treatment,where can I get some and how much is it?.I have also read that the euro 4 needs a blank with a small hole but in other posts it is a plain blank with no hole. Which is correct?
  13. Problems With Egr Valve

    I have a 2.0l Mondeo titanium estate-December 2006 reg and have had similar probs, but not as bad, as described above. How do I find if it is euro4 engine(what is a euro 4 engine? ). The car is high milage (125000 ) and runs better than my previous petrol Mondeo exept for smoke on hard acceleration. I am getting ready to do oil/filter change so am thinking of blanking the egr if I can. Will it be ok to do it or will it cause any problems? Hope someone can enlighten me.
