Probably Normal But ...

05 May 2013 - 08:10 AM

My Mondeo diesel (1997 Mk3, TDCI 130ps with 95k mls) is very lumpy and struggles a lot at first daily start up. It struggles for the first few minutes but then it's fine after a very short while of driving. Is it normal or might it need some maintenance do you think ?

Speedo Switch

I recently bought a '97 Mk3 Mondeo which was imported into Ireland from the UK. In Ireland all the road speed limit signs etc. are in Kmh while the speedo in the Mondeo is in Mph. Obviously the speedo also reads Kph in the smaller dial, but I wondered if it was possible to change the readout for a Kph dial. The car I had before had the Kph readout and I had become accustomed to it. Anyone know if changing the dial (as opposed to the entire panel) is a possibility ?

What Do You Suppose This Means ?

It's written in black marker under the bonnet of the Mondeo diesel I bought last week.

Open The Bonnet ??

Hi all,

Last week I became a Ford owner for the first time. I finally read the manual and learnt how to open the bonnet using the key to open it behind the front badge. So the manual said turn the key left and pop the bonnet up a bit. Then turn it right and open it up. When I turn the key left, nothing happens. I try to pop the bonnet using reasonable force both on the key and the bonnet itself but it doesn't budge. How much force should I be applying when I turn the key ? I'm afraid the key will snap off. Maybe it needs some oil or something ?

Hi all,

Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Patrick from Dublin and last week became a Ford owner for the first time. It's a 2007 Mondeo diesel and so far I'm really liking it. I look forward to interacting with you here on the forums.

Cheers !
