Hello chaps just found this thread and found it most interesting, I'm a mobile tech and have recently been given a mondeo 2.0 Tdci 2009 with this engine oil/fuel problem.
My initial thoughts were to test diesel pump as this is a common problem amongst higher mileage engines, this was found to be ok. The vehicle is doing around 21 mls to the gallon and filling the sump rapidly,I have found myself consulting the web and forums more and more in recent years as the problems i'm facing are the more peculiar problems but ones that i feel are becoming more common. I would like to thank everyone who has had an input to this thread as it's information is invaluable and i'm now a lot clearer as far as the job in hand is concerned.I'm now going to e-mail the chap who was looking to take mazda to court and see what his outcome was (If he is still on his mazda campaign).
My next quest is to find a fix does anyone know if Ford have a software update to this effect??.
