      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.

  1. 2003 Mondeo 2.0 Tdci 130 Trusty Glow Plug Light!

    I am new to this forum and I found the comments very useful.It helped the garage to find the problem on my Mondeo 2.0 130 TDCI.My engine cutout while driving at 55 MPH towing a caravavan. The engine light came on and I coasted, switching on again started the engine, it ran fine but it would not pull at more than 15-20 Mph before it cutout again. In neutral the engine would start and rev with no problems. We were recovered and the garage found no fault codes. After cleaning the EGR , which was found to be OK the cam sensor was changed. On the test drive the engine cutout but again no fault codes. The crank sensor was found to be cracked on the flange for the securing bolt . Is this a common problem ? since the plastic looks quiet weak. Hopefully the problem is now solved and we have a reliable car again .Can anyone tell me if you should not use the thottle in Limp Mode ? Limited Vehical Mode.The car has been very good especially om fuel consumption ie 50-55 MPG but the gearbox is stiff and a lower 1st gear would be useful to try to avoid stalling at 5-10 MPH.
