Common Problems?

4 posts in this topic

Can anyone list any more common problems on a mk3 mondeo?!

Ive owned my 55 plate Mondeo about 3 months, its spent about half of that parked up!

So far its had ghe following;

Full fuel system-pump died so changed all system, injectors, rail, tank, filter and all pipes.

Brand new EGR valve.

Refurbished electronic turbo actuator.

Turbo replaced.

New battery.

Wheel bearings replaced.

Starter replaced.

Solid flywheel and clutch conversion.

Decat pipe-cat clogged up with soot.

I do all my own work so have saved a fortune, but id rather it just run! I need a reliable car for my 60 mile a day commute, seriously thinking of changing cars if this is to continue!

Its currently broken down. Waiting for a diesel specialist to come out on Monday.

So are there any more expensive repairs I may come across that I can check before it breaks again?

This is my third mk3 mondeo. The other 2 ended up as cubes!

Thanks

were the injectors coded in? and did the actuator come with the replacement turbo?

Sorry to hear its broken down at the moment

You did not need to pay for a new EGR valve - fitting a solid plate "fixes" a faulty or leaking valve, but the EML needs to be reset with a code reader every so often (as you have a Euro4 model MK3 Mondeo)

Best to stick a solid blanking plate on it - i know of someone that went through 4 EGR valves - if you MUST have a working EGR valve you can get a Jaguar X-type one cheaper - don't forget to clean out your inlet manifold - once if you fit a solid plate or again and again if you leave your EGR unblanked or use a plate with a hole in

Did you replace the entire turbo, including the exhaust manifold or just the cartrige? the VNT mech/ variable vanes are in the manifold and can coke up and sieze - this can have a knock-on effect on the actuator, this is often what causes actuator failure and if you just replace/fix/refurbish the actuator without checking the vanes the actuator may fail again

Whats the mileage on the car?

I take it you have serviced it too?
