Gear Lever Play

28 June 2013 - 05:38 PM

I've started to get too much side to side play in the gear lever.  Forward & back isn't an issue.

I'm sure it's a linkage problem, perhaps associated with a worn spring that takes up the slack?

Is this a known wear item?  Easy to fix without a ramp?


Many thanks


2.0 Tdci "surging"

28 June 2013 - 05:33 PM

My 2007 TCDI 2.0 Mondeo has done 130,000 miles & generally runs without a problem.

However, on zero or a very light throttle it seems to surge ie seems to accelerate fractionally,then not, then on again etc.  Pehaps 2 or 3 seconds between on & off if you see what I mean.  It's just not as smooth as it used to be at very light throttle settings.

It won't be a blocked DPF as I regularly drive a decent distance at high speed.  I also take it to the red line (with a warm engine) every few weeks & get some smoke, which quickly clears.  I did these things before I noticed the surging issue.

Can anyone please give me some guidance here?
