i would never use a jump start as the smart charge system will try and zap 18 volts into the dead battery which can fry componants.

it sounds like a thermostat is stuck and will have to be replaced,as for which one is playing up is hard to say as there are two on the mondeo mk3.

get the crank sensor removed and check it for iron filings blocking the signal, as this is a common fault if the DMF is failing, and will cause a difficult start.

make sure all the filter connections are good an no air leaks are present,was it an oem filter that was fitted as the mondy engine does not like aftermarket items, if it was i would look at doing an injector leak off test, a stuck open injector is a common cause of the P0251 fault code.

i  only thought these jammers work on handheld laser units,they bring up an error code on the handset and unless they pick up the scatter from the handheld by the time the jammer reacts its too late,, most gatso camers work on a different band (K)to the handheld,if they blocked gatso camers as well they would not be able to make them quick enough,and when the police follow up the error code it can be a lot more expensive than a speeding fine.
