Power Issues Mk3 Tddi

22 July 2014 - 10:28 AM

Hi Guys and Girls

 

I seem to notice that my MK3 tddi has a few flat spots in power delivery.

if im on the motorway for example if i put my foot to the floor there car will accelarate but feels like it slowly winding up to speed.

if i put my foot all the way down and lift up slightly the thing picks up speed a hell of a lot quicker, if i return my foot to the carpet it seems to be bogging (if thats a good word to describe it)

 

anyone else experience something like this?


Mpg Mk3 Tddi

Hello

 

Can anyone tell me what kind of mileage they get on a full tank of diesel? im currently getting around 500 which i thought was a little low.

 

I have clean and blocked off the egr and cleaned the inlet manifold out when i purchased the car.

I do a 80 mile run to work and back everyday on the motorway so would think the MPG would b better.

 

any help would be great.


A Bit More Go On The Mondeo

After speaking to FOCA on here and him saying the backbox on the mondeo was quite restrictive, I thought I'd have a go at removing the lump of metal.

Took my trusty angle grinder to it. The car is more responsive and seems a bit more willing to get going now!

Top tip FOCA thumps up to you my friend.

On a side note I've got rid of my strange loose feeling on the back. Never guess what it was!! Exhaust mounts for the back box was shot and not connected anymore. The excessive movement of the exhaust was causing the rear near side to feel like it was breaking loose

Another Headlight Mod

05 March 2014 - 03:26 PM

Hey all.

I recently moved house, when moving the garage around I found a old set of angel eyes for a BMW I once had that I never fitted.
I looked at them and thought I could fit these in the mondeo headlights. I hate the idea of fitting a car that is not a BMW with them but I thought what the heck if I don't like it I'll pull them back out.

Well I thought I don't want them on display an look at the head light design and thought I could mount the angel eye behind the plastic to light the full beam up slightly. The angel eye wouldn't fit in with all the plastic fitting around it so I carefully peeled the tube out from inside and fixed it in place. Anyway here is what she looks like

What's your thoughts. Should they stay or go?
