    I had a thought that it would be the clutch my dad said he hoped it was maybe just a gear box bearing. Thank fully I didn't spend too much on the car when I got it. Another thing we found was oil getting up round the plugs but we seem to have that problem sorted. The car just still sounds like it's chugging and missing to a point tht it's going to stall when stationary. The engine is immaculate and underneath the body is in good nick. The car was obviously kept but as far as keeping it well serviced I don't know the air filter was thick with dirt and the oil was rotten lol. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  10. Well folks recently got myself a wee run around a mk3 mondeo 127k . Test drove it no lights on beautiful driving car So journey home about 30 odd mile the oil light came on, that was alright was a bit low so put oil in. Then the engine light came on with a chugging feeling like theres a miss in the engine. Hooked it up to the wee diagnostics got the P0400 code. ordered a new egr valve replaced it cleaned the pipes etc done an oil change n oil filter new plugs etc done typical wee service brilliant lights went off took it down the road and the oil lights flicking like mad engine lights popping on and off same codes showing up. Knocking coming from engine and when u push clutch pedal in it stops Theres a gurgling noise behind where the heater is situated on the dash the air vents wont blow air out now just on windscreen aswell. and to top it all off filled the tank and the fuel guage went mad and is now stuck on the red light even though theres fuel in it. Has anyone any other advice on what will put this car right other than t-met lol its our 3rd mondeo past 2 where diesel no problems with them. thanks Andrea
