hi, i bought my mk3 mondeo 2.0 tdci 130 about 2 months ago, people keep telling me as i power away from em there is a LOT of black coming out of the exhaust. mainly at low revs it would seem, im told these have injector issues, regularly needing replacement costing a lot. this is not rly an option, i have been advised to get some redex, anyone any experience of this? and will the redex make much difference?

if you're going to add anything,try Forte injector cleaner. redex is crap

Check your air hoses for splits especialy the one coming up from the intercooler to the egr, then clean your egr out. If those two dont fix it then blank your egr and see if that works.

may be the filter in the exhaust, this can get clogged up if you dont do alot of high rev driving. all you would need to do is run in along a motor way at high revs, id suggest 55mph in 4th maybe 3rd gear, as youd want to be in the slow lane because it blows all the crap out the filter. only a suggestion and worth a try, could be a cheap quick fix. worked on my 09 diesel

Hi Benj3941.

Any help be appreciated please.
Thanks. Matthew
