    Mondeo misfiring at low revs

    I had same problem which turned out to be the coil pack. My friendly local moto shop let me borrow ht leads and as this made no difference i put in new plugs still making no difference. Then a banger racing friend of mine suggested the coil pack, 'about £50 off e/bay' and after fitting, this cured the problem. Hope this helps Simon

    Hi! Can any one tell me the location of the alarm horn on my mk3 'x reg' mondeo please? (I,de like to replace the horn with something louder) I thought it was linked to the main horn but it isn,t? It has just the standard factory fitted alarm system. Cheers.

    sudden increse in high revs?

    Thanks for the reply! Iv,e checked throttle linkage etc and all is ok. Also when the revs suddenly shoot up i notice that the accelerator pedal becomes stiff, heavy? Could the throttle cable be getting snagged, frayed? One other syptom i didn,t mention was jerky acceleration and was told this was the coil pack, i,m fitting a new one tomorrow, could this be related to high revs i wonder? Simon
  7. Can any one help with this problem? Driving home tonight in my mk 3 '1.8 Mondeo petrol' manual x reg, i had the fright of my life when changing from 2nd to 3rd gear, as the revs leapt up to 6000rpm even though my foot was off the accelerator pedal? The high revs lasted for about 4 seconds. It did this every time i changed gear but i was able to crawl home using small amounts of throttle. I checked under the bonnet when i got home and revved the car up in neutral and it seemed fine? It,s not the clutch as the car stalls when handbrake is on in 1st gear as i attempt to move. Any help would be welcome. Simon

    Mondeo back box

    Hi All! I have the mk3 mondeo estate 2000 reg. The back box is blowing, am i right in saying that you can not buy just the backbox but need to buy the mid section/backbox as a complete unit? Cheers! Simon

    06 duratec 1.8 125hp

    No idea what the fault code was, all i did was remove the back box and after finding this was the fault i replaced the old box with new. Simon

    06 duratec 1.8 125hp

    Hi! I had a cavelier a few years back with very similar problems. It turned out to be the exhaust back box disentigrating and stopping gases from being released. I removed the box before buying a new one, started the car and drove loudly for a few miles and all was well! You never know, this may be your problem. Simon
