Cam Belt Or Chain ?

25 December 2013 - 12:32 AM

Hi All, and a Merry Xmas :)


I've got a 1.8 TDi Mondeo Estate on a 59 plate, just done 100k miles.


How do I find out if its a belt or a chain ? and if a belt, I guess its ready for a new one ?

Battery Being Drained Flat On 59 Plate Mondeo Edge Estate.

21 January 2013 - 08:09 PM

Had this car for about 8 months with no problems, but it has been run everyday, and in warmer weather !!.
Parked it up friday afternoon and didn't try to start it til today (mon 21.1.2013.)

Battery had gone flat.

AA Home Start checked the battery and charging system, perfect. Bu,t he detected that there was an intermittant drain of between 0.3A which would jump upto 1.1Amp, that with the ignition off and the car dead locked by the key fob.

I have noticed elsewhere on the internet that people have been commenting on this problem, one who had spent a fortune on Auto Electrical Engineers but still didn't resolve the problem.

I wonder if any of our members experienced this ??
