Ford Mondeo 2007 TDCI - Loss of power.

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all.

Hopefully I'm in the right place for a bit of advice. My Mondeo was sitting up for just under a year. It is back on the road again now however it has lost all power and acceleration. There is an engine management light on the dash that is throwing up a code for emissions.

I had a friend with some knowledge have a look and he noticed the turbo actuator isn't moving. He said it could also be a problem with the EGR valve being clogged up however there is no black smoke or anything like that. 

Any ideas? I've been asking around in regards to price at Ford mechanics and I'm being quoted quite high for something that isn't even diagnosed yet. Just wondering is this a common problem and is there any home remedies I could try before putting it into a garage. Getting married in two weeks so if I can cut costs I will!

Thanks for the help.

To start with clear he codes and then see what the new ones are, forscan is a free program download from here and get a modified ELM cable from here https://tunnelrat-electronics.fwscart.com/ other elms are available but tend to be crap, just a note the drivers for the tunnelrat elm are on a separate page i presume you have or can borrow a laptop

Thanks I'll get on that. 

I was driving it home today and it started making quite a loud hissing noise. It's time to stop driving it i I think.

 Hissing noise is likely to be a split hose on the turbo or intercooler side, can be very hard to spot, a tip pinched of another on this forum is to wrap a pastic bag round the suspect hose and tape it in position if it gets an oil mist in it thats your split hose.
