Sudden Loss Of Power On 1.8 Tdci Engine

10 September 2012 - 02:20 PM

Hi

Can anyone help?

I have an 03 plate 1.8 Tdci mondeo which has served me well and the poor girl is a little sick. Twice now and with no warning lights the engine just stopped, the first time on a motorway when doing 70, and yesterday when accelerating away from a roundabout.

On both occasions. I stopped and turned off the ignition and restarted and everything is fine. Please note that this is not a turbo issue where the car only revs to say 2000 rpm but a total power failure. When doing 70 this is no joke as you loose power steering and servo brakes!!!

Can anyone help?

Cheers

Dave
