when you say "running a bit off" what do you mean?

Ideally we need a bit more information.

Welcome along by the way :)

Welcome to the forum alan,

To get maximum help regarding the running issues, please create another specific thread in the mondeo section, as this existing topic is for others to welcome you to the forum.

If you get a moment join photobucket and upload some images of your motor, You can then edit to remove your reg plate etc. Then copy the .img code from each image uploaded and paste it on to a post in the forum or many forums for the image to display. You may also like to log on to DMB Graphics for some Gel badge overlays to fit over your existing blue ford badges: http://www.dmb.uk.co...es-gel-overlays

You may also like to browse my list guides all linked below this post, most of the guides are available in PDF format to download and print aswell as viewing online.

Bad valve seats would be my guess, or maybe piston rings. Those are the 'normal' causes of an oily spark plug (and it will cause it to run "a bit off").

Not really a job for the home mechanic.
