Mk3 Mondeo Tdci Problem

29 January 2013 - 10:12 PM


just brought a mk3 tdci euro 4 engine 55 plate mondeo

the problem is really wierd

if u drive it hard after 3000rpm it will go into limp mode ... but if driven sensibly it will go all the way round the rev range ????

when i brought it the guy said it has had a second hand turbo actuator on it . as the old 1 failed .. . and he was told sometimes they need recoding ??? is this true ?? or not ???

also today i unplugged the MAF Sensor ( airflow meter ) and the car didnt run no different ..... but im sure it should of ran lumpy and smokey with out that connected ?????but the engine management light did come on ??? but went off when reconnected MAF Sensor .

it starts first time in a morning . no smoke from cold when started . and no smoke when driving .... engine is a little knocky but put that down to a diesel knock

the things i have tried is

Clean EGR Valve
Unplug MAF Sensor ( Changed MAF Sensor as it brought code p0100 up )
Changed Boost Pipe As it was split
Changed Airfilter As it was black ....
checked for a power feed to MAF - All Workin Fine

What else could it be ????

its got 148k on clock ....

Im still getting 40mpg combined ....which i think is good ???? and around 35mpg round town .....
