5 posts in this topic

hi hoping you can give some advice. just bought a 2005 2.2tdci mondeo 155bhp and on starting it soun ds "lumpy" as in it ticks over but doesnt feel or sound smooth is this normal or am i going to have problems? also have started to hear a whining noise from the back drivers side wheel...think it probably wheel this a straight forward job or am i looking at a garage job....thanks for looking and any advice appreciated.

Hello and welcome,

The 2.2 is a great engine, it should be nice and smooth at idle though so something isn't quite right on yours - possibly the egr valve.

Whining noise will be a wheel bearing, rear ones are pretty straight forward to change

EGR Valves are common on this engine... my dads had 2 of them... and maybe a 3rd this weekend!! Luckily 2 of them under warranty!!

These are all after about 30000-35000 miles!!

I can see a blanking plate being bought...
