New Mondeo Owner 2.2Tdci


Recommended Posts

hi hoping you can give some advice. just bought a 2005 2.2tdci mondeo 155bhp and on starting it soun ds "lumpy" as in it ticks over but doesnt feel or sound smooth is this normal or am i going to have problems? also have started to hear a whining noise from the back drivers side wheel...think it probably wheel bearing...is this a straight forward job or am i looking at a garage job....thanks for looking and any advice appreciated.

Hello and welcome,

The 2.2 is a great engine, it should be nice and smooth at idle though so something isn't quite right on yours - possibly the egr valve.

Whining noise will be a wheel bearing, rear ones are pretty straight forward to change

hi thanks for that and the welcomes. looks like next weekends job....if theres no snow...lol. but more problems this morning,got to work and restarted the car after about 4 hrs and was totally engulfed in white smoke....big..big cloud of it.

the mondeo has replaced a vectra and what a difference between them....mondeo a lot better....but just hoping i havent bought a bad one....

EGR Valves are common on this engine... my dads had 2 of them... and maybe a 3rd this weekend!! Luckily 2 of them under warranty!!

These are all after about 30000-35000 miles!!

I can see a blanking plate being bought...
