  • Ford Model: mondeo tddi

Posted 09 February 2011 - 06:08 PM

A while ago I posted that I was having issues with the general running of my 2001 mondeo tddi. After advice I cleaned out the egr valve and inlet manifold to the point they were spotless. However, Im still getting the hesitation and excessive amounts of black smoke and almost like a kangaroo effect when sitting between 60-70. Ive heard that intercooler pipes could be the problem if they have split but just wondering if there is anything else that could cause these symptoms to happen?


Thanks in advance

intercooler pipes is the most obvious as when split they allow warm air into the turbo which stops the fuel burning as efficiently hence the black smoke. trace the pipe from the egr around the engine bay to look for splits

Sorry to hijack post but having similar problem



Hi,

Help please

I had what appeard to be a water leak back in october when some distance away from home so used radweld to seal the leak and my car seamed to be ok no more leaks and no more issues. About six weeks later the car started to struggle between 2000 and 2500 rpm in 4th and 5th gear, rev counter needle bounces back and forward and car chuggs until past 2500 rpm and then runs fine. I took it to a diesel specialist who claimed the water pump was leaking even though no loss of water I agreed to allow them to change due to the issue i had previously however once changed this never solved the problem. The garage thought it may be the EGR valve so they ageed to blank it off free of charge and still the same issue was there. They then suggested it may be a small electric pump under the rear wheel arch and i paid for the pump and they fitted it free of charge but still never resolved the issue so they worked on it for a while to reset the ecu as they thought that the ECU settings may have adjusted to compansate for the faulty pump. This seemed to sort the problem but car seemed to have lost a bit of power and my heater of all things just didn't to be as warm as previously to the settings on ecu being changed. The garage agreed to use a Vacume pump to bleed the heating system and that has solved the problem with the heater but my original fault is back an i'm now 500 down and back to where I started. Any help with this would be appriciated
