In Topic: Probably Normal But ...

15 May 2013 - 05:51 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 ?

Thanks Leonard and wow you have so many "how to guides" that's great. Will get some pictures up soon.


Quick update on the motor.


Serviced at the weekend including new..

Oil flush, oil and filter

Air Filter

Pollen Filter

Fuel Filter


One of the fog lights was cracked and luckily the previous owner had bought the part so got that fitted as well.

See image ignore the toilet box i took it on, lol!!



Had a go with the clay bar on the front wings but have up in the end it was too cold and kept going too hard to work with.

When the better weather comes i will resume and get the polish and wax out too.

Washed today and a new set of bosch wipers. Why do people let them get that bad. Service on Mondeo I think, if it stays dry.
