Hi all

Although I'm more leaning towards the likley hood of it being a stretched cable. My brother had the same sort of issue on his focus so no idea why I didn't think of it till now lol

Theres no accelerater cable on mondeos its a electronic non sure on what you call it though

mine idles just over 800rpm when cold and exactly 800 rpm when warm but i have notice since the problem with my slightly leaking injector that the engine is hunting slightly though and when under driving load it starts to rattle on the injector then soon as i give it a boost off the turbo it goes in to limp mode.

has for ajusting your idle im not sure i think you have to go to garage and put the car on the laptop to ajust it but if its idling low could you have a faulty airflow metre as i think that can cause idling problems.
you can try giving the airflow metre a clean with cotton buds and thinners but be very carefull not to break the elements inside it no harm giving it a try 10min job !!

John, good move with the estate, hope this one works out, it looks like a lovely car.
The plus point is you now know what to look for, once bitten twice shy.
If you think this is the car for you why not get an independant motor enginer to give it the once over, the AA will do this regardless of wether you are a member or not.

yeah will do that maybe i just cant believe how folks can do this to people he convinced me the last owner was a diesel specialist till i wrote to him LOL he was a taxi driver self employed and he part choped for a newer mondeo and the estate was giving him grief with the injectors and fuel pump he spent £1500 on it and still failed he was happy to talk about it i told him there was no sign of it being a ex taxi thats because he didnt have all the metres fitted in it just a plate on the back wich was stuck on is reg plate its a shame still cost me in the long run im £250 out of pocket so going to try and claim off the robbing gits
is were i got it from so all of you keep away
