  1. Ford 3 Yr Warranty

    But i assume if ford say there is nothing wrong with the pump and the seal needs lubricating via a solution or a new coolant, then they would charge be labour for doing that, rather than replacing the whole part under warranty?
  2. Ford 3 Yr Warranty

    Does this include any issues with the water pump?
  3. Ford 3 Yr Warranty

    Have a creeking noise from my ford Mondeo 2006. Had it checked by a ford specialist who diagnosed the problem as the water pump seal needs lubrication. Thus the reason for the noise. I did think it was to do with the pulleys (a known issue with Mondeo's) but it wasn't! Anyway my query is, would the water pump be covered for replacement under the ford 3 yr new car warranty. I thought it would as the pump could be deemed to be faulty due to the seal - but on the otherhand it could be said the pump works - which it does and just needs some maintenance, and hence not a warranty issue. But i was told by the Ford specialist that all i need to do is run some solution through the cooling system (such as Bar's Leak) which will lubricate the seal - but he said the pump would need to be monitored just in case at the next service. My only worry is this could be a sign the pump might eventually go, and if Ford can replace it under warranty for free it will keep me happy for at least 3 yrs or so rather than having to fork out for a new pump after the warranty expires. A car of this age should not have problems like this and the noise is very irritating! Ford also say they will need to check the car "themselves", and if its not under warranty they will charge £100 inc VAT per hour for labour, and so im unsure whether to take the risk - i could fork out £100 for them doing nothing - and any work they do maybe outside of warranty if not covered according to them, i could may quite a bit. Any views, or expereinces of this in regards to the Ford Warranty and water pumps?
  4. Sounds like a reasonable explanation actually, so thanks. I assume with these things its best to get it checked ASAP before it does any real damage? I'm hoping to get it checked on Sat Also is this covered in the 3yr warranty Ford give from new / or will i have to forlk out for the labour & part?
  5. Hi all. Some of you may have come across this, others not, and it might be quite hard to explain unless you have heard the car, but here goes. I have a 2006 Mondeo (facelifted, before new model) on a 06. I bought it June 07 and have had no issues with it. But recently the car engine has started making a funny "creeking/whirring" noises again as you rev the car. I was concerned at the first time this happened, but after a while the noise disappeared and i was happy. But for some reason it has now come back. It is very obvious and still remains at high revs, and now recently stops below 1000 rpm. I thought it might be to do with the engine not being warm, but i can't see that being a reason. I'm not too worried at the moment as i still have my 3 yr warranty by Ford until apr 09, but wanted to know if anyone had come across it before?
