Good Morning, i wonder if anyone can help me, i have a mk 1 mondeo, 1996 N reg, 1.8 petrol saloon.
In the mornings it starts fine but will not pull, it feels as though it is misfiring or a lack of fuel, i have put new plugs and leads on but have had no joy. I first thought it might be due to being cold but it also done it a little whilst doing 65 on the A14, i thought it might be fuel starvation but i read on another website that it wouldn't be that, i also have a little rattle coming from the engine bay, it sounds like a bearing on the cam belt pulley but i have also heard that that could possibly be an inlet manifold problem which would also cause the fuel like problems. My next idea was to fit a new fuel filter and coil pack but if anyone can help before i do this i will be most grateful. Thank you very much
Gary

just thought i would update, i have now fitted a new coil pack, and have noticed a massive improvement,,,however, it still felt as though it was "choking", having driven a car with a manual choke, i would say it felt like the choke had been left on after it was warmed up. Possibly a choke prob,,,,any ideas??

Go with replacing filters, Air, Fuel and Oil. These will probably improve the performance greatly...
