  1. Check for smoke coming from the turbo heat shield area, could be a leaky pipe causing lack of pressure http://i351.photobucket.com/albums/q459/baitman2006/forum%20bits/car%20pics/mondeoenginedetail_zps5755de92.jpg
  2. The low compression could account for why it's struggling in low gears. I would recommend putting the blank back on tho, why poison an engine with dirty air. modern Diesels like clean air and clean fuel
  3. Got to be looking at £600 plus with coding and then fitting at least. And then there's the VAT aswell just to rub it in
  4. So true Mark, just depends how much people are willing to spend and what type of fix they choose. There are a lot of 2ltr 130's out there, prob best to scrap it and move on and get another with less miles.
  5. Hi. I have a euro 4 that has done 164k miles. I'm having injector issues as we speak. the engine is effectively being starved of fuel. At that mileage it's likely the injectors are on there way out. How were the injectors checked? If it was a simple leak back test, that probably isn't enough. They need to be pressure tested to be absolutely sure they are knackered. A couple of simple tell tale signs are: 1. With the bonnet open and the engine running, does it appear like the engine is rocking violently as if an engine mount has broken? Or 2. With the drivers (or passenger) door open and engine running, does the door appear to bounce? If both are the case, the engine is probably running very lumpy and is struggling to breath, eat and !Removed! and wants to be turned off and never switched back on ever again! Hope you get a result, damn fine car and !Removed! good engine as long as it's maintained Cheers, Jarvo
  6. Hi guys and gals! Went to open the glove box today and the pull handle has gone loose and I can't open it up. What's the best way to get it open or even remove it without damaging the handle? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  8. Fitted bulbs in the foot wells where ford either forgot or someone pinched them to use elsewhere. Hey presto, I can see my feet!!! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  9. This is why I love this forum, good advice from people that experienced the problems first hand. Cheers Dave, great write up! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  13. Jim, if you've got he same plate I had ( open slot fixing) the easiest thing I found was not to take the bolts right out. it can be slid straight into position and the bolts nipped back up again, job done Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  14. Yeah me too. Just needs the injectors to go wrong way up and that will defo send me over the edge :) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
