  1. 2004 ford mondeo 2.0 petrol

    I havent noticed any smoke while driving but i have been told by people that it does smoke occasionally when given stick but not too much..
  2. 2004 ford mondeo 2.0 petrol

    If i stop at side of road and rev it it will normally rev fine right til redline but under load she struggles like hell..
  3. I have a 2004 2.0 petrol mondeo and it keeps playing up.. It has loss of power and wont always rev when driving along.. most of time it wont rev past 4000rpm which i can deal with but is annoying but now once engine is warm it wont rev past 2500/3000rpm under load and keeps trying to break down altogether.. iv had coil, leads and spark plugs changed which made a difference for a week then has gone back to how it was.. every now and again EML comes on saying EGR Valve.. could this be causing all this trouble also when changed spark plugs they were soaked in oil.. The car does use a hell of alot of oil?? Always has done since i bought it a year ago and the problem with not revving has been same since i brought it.. Any help would be appreciated..

  5. Mk3 mondeo suspension

    Thankyou.. Also another question i forgot to ask was when braking gently theres a judder, almost as if abs is cutting in but its not.. would a snapped spring also cause that aswell.. many thanks for replying
  6. Iv just brought a 2004 Ford Mondeo 2.0 petrol.. a great car.. since i have owned it its always creaked and groaned from front suspension & steering sometimes feels heavy.. it went straight thru MOT before i bought it and have found out today iv got a snapped spring on drivers side front.. Is it likely the heavy steering occasionally and creaking an groaning is caused by the snapped spring or could i have another problem too.. any help appreciated..
  7. Iv just brought a 2004 Ford Mondeo Ghia 2.0 petrol.. When test drove it all the electric windows worked and now the passenger front window will not work from passenger door or from drivers door.. the other 3 elec windows work perfectly.. does any1 know what the problem could be.. iv got a long journey to do in it on monday and need it working before i go.. other than that it is a brilliant car..
  8. Iv got the chance of a Mk3 Ford Mondeo Ghia X 2.0 Diesel Automatic with 89000miles on the clock with full MOT but the only fault is the speedo doesnt work.. will it be an easy fix and simple to do or a nightmare job.. any help would be appreciated..

    Ok kool thankyou.. i will let you kno what we find wrong wi brakes n if a new driveshafts fixes the problem..
  13. 1998 Ford Escort(Uk) Knocking Noise

    Could it have been a dodgy caliper i got then? It will ave to wait til next month now but il ask my dad to strip the caliper down when he does the driveshaft.. do you think it will b ok jus to replace passemger driveshaft or should i replace drivers side at same time.. i know if 1 goes the others prob not far off unless i did damage it.. but if i can jus chamge the pass side to see if it stops it before i spend out on the otherside, it would make findin the money abit more easier, especially if it turns out iv caused damage to gearbox..

    The passenger side brake sticks if ya have to brake hard & it pulls to the right under hard braking & pulls to the left when changing gear.. Very strange.. i think its coz i drive a different (small KA) car around town that im noticing all these faults more i think.. id gotten so used to everything gradually goin that i never payed any attention when it was the only car i was using but after driving a different car, its all way too noticable.. The KA feels like a merc compared to my Escort atm.. lol.. and the strange thing is the KA seats are actually more comfortable on a longer journey than my escorts aswell but theres nothing like my own car to drive tho.. its a nice enough car to drive but i hate driving my mates KA.. lol

    It seems to do it as you lift off the clutch to take up drive & over bumps.. i was wondering if the pulling to left when changing gear could have anything to do with shock absorbers?? They seem to be fine but my back ones seemed fine and kept goin thru MOT even tho i knew they had had it 2 MOT's ago and altho they seemed fine if you bounced them driving along they used to bang and when we changed them, they were that bad, it had snapped the springs aswell.. but im soo worried about spending too much money that i dont have, to find its not that but summin else if you can understand that.. i cant afford to take it to a garage to get it looked at either.. so i think, its guna be a case of slowly replacing everything bit by bit.. it only gets used for the long runs now, i only drive it around town once a week to keep everything ticking over..
