New to posting but have read many posts that have been very helpful indeed!
My story is this:
55 Plate Mondeo 2ltr 130 tdci with 146k motorway miles.
Firstly like to say that I love this car, it's a great car that takes me on a journey of 33 miles each way to work
5 days a week and gives me 650 miles per tank. Good enough for me for the mileage it's done!
I changed the starter motor 3 months ago as I was experiencing the dreaded howl of a dying starter and I'm aware that
I will be facing the not so wallet happy task of converting over to an SMF and new clutch. Got a decent price from a local
supplier for about £280 for the parts and a good mate with lots of experience to replace the parts for me.
The issue's I'm getting are:
Smoke on semi hard acceleration
Clutch pedal seems to snag occasionally
Jumps into limp mode if I have to accelerate above 3k revs when cold.
Having read lots of info on the smoke, I am confused over the egr valve blanking plate trick versus having the injectors reconditioned, what works best, if any?
The clutch pedal issue I believe not to be that serious but probably a mechanical snag in and around the foot well but yet to properly investigate.
The limp mode inconvenience I am putting down to temperature and age or could it be something else???
Any help to the above from your vast knowledge is much appreciated.
