      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    1995 Ford Mondeo 1.8 TD
  1. Guys - my brothers car is up for its MOT i cant say he`s looked after the car and its been sat on his drive for 12 months unused! its had a recent new battery and starts first time its done 149,510 miles on a 1998 S Registration, its the Mondeo 16V Ghia Zetec Engine 2 litre petrol model when should the cambelt be changed on these models? how often between oil changes etc? or any other advice you can give would be most appreciated it needs to get through the MOT and the rear bumper has a huge split and crack on it anyone any good at repairs from Oxford or Swindon on here? it needs TAX and 2 new tyres, been thinking is it all worth it on a car with this much mileage? what can he expect mileage wise to get out of it after he gives it a full service aswell
  2. Hi guys and Gals my dad just bought a Ford Mondeo 1.8TD on an N Registration its done 83440 miles, he is the 6th owner, yikes! still drives lovely, economical, everything working on it etc bumpers a bit flaky here and there, but other than that a great little Bargain he got there :P only cost him £500 for Cash When he bought the car he was told by the Garage "Northampton Trade Cars" that it had had 2 Previous Owners, my dad recieved the Log Book today and it has had 5! so he is the 6th, he was also told that it had had the Cambelt done on it, didnt say when though! my Dad can find NO indication when or where! my Question is how much roughly would it cost for a cambelt change from a Garage or mechanic do you reckon? he is pretty desperate and is concerned it could just go BANG if something isnt done, more piece of mind than anything anyone have any ideas? and also on this make and model of car, what should he look out for that normally goes wrong on this year of Mondeo? Many Thanks Wayne in Oxford
