In Topic: Mondeo misfiring at low revs

27 June 2009 - 07:42 PM

if the leads are starting to break down(common on mondeos) a weak spark will be the result, before buying new plugs leads ect try gapping the plugs at 1mm instead of the recomended 1.3mm to see if there is an improvement.

I had same problem which turned out to be the coil pack.
My friendly local moto shop let me borrow ht leads and as this made no difference i put in new plugs still making no difference.
Then a banger racing friend of mine suggested the coil pack, 'about 50 off e/bay' and after fitting, this cured the problem.

Hope this helps

Hi all, Can anyone please tell me where the engine number is on a 2.0l (51 plate) petrol mondeo ;)

Not sure about engine number but chassis number is just below windscreen washers under bonnet looking straight ahead.
Hope this helps.

Problem solved!

Sticking throttle cable.
Also changed coil pack and solved problem with jerky acceleration.

Cheers All!

check all the throtle linkage for anything sticking, could be an air leak on a vacume pipe or a faulty temp sensor giveing wrong signals to the ecu.

Thanks for the reply!
Iv,e checked throttle linkage etc and all is ok.
Also when the revs suddenly shoot up i notice that the accelerator pedal becomes stiff, heavy?
Could the throttle cable be getting snagged, frayed?

One other syptom i didn,t mention was jerky acceleration and was told this was the coil pack, i,m fitting a new one tomorrow, could this be related to high revs i wonder?
