Mondeo Tdci - Dark Smoke & `safe` Mode` Comes On Under Load/acceleration

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

After ongoing issues with my car and the dreaded flashing glow plug light, the diesel specialist garage has said that it is the boost pressure wastegate which is the problem. They have said that they cant be bought separately and Ford will only sell it alongside a new Turbo unit for £1000. Is there any alternative to having to do this - can the pressure sensor or whatever be accessed?

Also, what are the symptoms if a Map sensor is faulty on a mondeo tdci?

Thanks,

Stuart

i presume that the car is showing error code P132A or P2263.first thing to check is that the varible vanes in the turbo are not clogged up with gunge,disconnect the arm from the actuator and see if it moves freeley if it does the vanes are allright.if the actuator is the problem these can not be bourght on there own.someone on ebay was offering a repair service but has dissapeared, so they can be repaired but i do not know how.
