In Topic: 05 Mondeo Tdci 115 Wont Start . Turning Over Ok

latest update , i decided to strip the old engine so took of the timing chain cover so i could remove the fuel pump , set the timing first and discovered the front cam wheel was out about 4 teeth but why has it done this ? the chain and guides and tensioner all seem fine , so ive no idea why this engine has broke the cam box on the front cam . the only thing that i noticed in the whole strip down was that it looked as if the air filter had tried to go up the pipe , so i wonder if it had sucked up water ? anyone seen this happen on a mondeo . will take the head of next week and see if the bottom end is ok .

hi all , just wondering if any of you have had your tdci remapped , i was thinking if there is problems with your EGR because of fouling is it not over fuelling that causes this ~? i might try mine when i get the new engine fitted (cam-box failure) to try and reduce the fuel and give it more air .

well you cant just set a cam box on , you would need it line-bored first , so ive just taken the engine out (boy was that a job) and im of to the ford breakers today to purchase a bare engine for 290 with 70000 miles on it . if you ever change the engine let me tell you it will take a whole day to take the old unit out lol . with a few phone calls people are saying that the cam chain tensioner was probably the cause with being over worn , i will be stripping the old unit to get my pump and other stuff of it so i will let you know .

Well after checking what we could still no life in her , so we got the diagnostics man to have look and it kept bringing up the camshaft sensor , ok we put another one in and still the same , he said that when he was turning it over that she was maybe light on compression , so we took of the rocker cover to do a compression test and there it was , a nice broken cam carrier box where the front rocker shaft had tried to jump out , next job then is fit another box . Anybody ever done this ?
