Good morning everyone.

From Saturday I will be the new owner of a Mondeo Zetec TDCI. 2004 plate.

I have had Rovers for the past 14 years and prior to that had a Ford Sierra. My present car being a Rover 75 1.8.

After having had 3 head gaskets in as many years I thought it time for a change. I am also looking forward to being able to do a few more miles per gallon.

Anyway just thought I would say hi and introduce myself.  

What are these cars like? Am I going to enjoy it?  Hope so !

The plan is to run it for a few years until I can afford a younger model. We all have different budgets which is why I went for this one. Cheap but nice. Drives lovely and it all works. I will have to get the dings sorted out though. :)

Welcome along, and it looks like a good little motor!

 

These cars are a pleasure to drive, although I would be wary of the injectors as they are a downfall of the MK3 mondeo's, and also keepo your eye out on the DMF.

Hi Dude, popped on over here and here you are :)

Yeah good points but to be fair that's where my ZTT probably is at now needing injectors, but the DMF is fine they rarely fail in the ZTT, personally I think failure is generally pretty rare in most, it is more often garages that won't do a clutch change without changing the whole system even if the DMF is still in spec.

Hi all this high tec stuff is exciting but  a bit confusing at first isn’t it.

 

Having spent several hours looking for the trip reset option
I thought my solution might help others. 
I have just purchased a 59 plate auto titanium x estate.  Lovely car bur rather different from the 100E
side valve I started with about 50 years ago. 
(You could forget about starting on a really damp morning!)

 

I couldn't get the reset trip option to appear on the main menu
list.  Eventually I twiddled with the switch
on far right next to the steering wheel (for rear fog lights I think, still
learning) next to the general light switch and it appeared on a new list on the
screen behind the steering wheel together with other fuel related information.  Pressed the OK button on the steering wheel
and  hey presto all sorted, trip set to 0!  Early days but seems a  fantastic car.

 

John  - Newbie.
