    Poor starting mondeo

    The diagnosis, (having had a full check by a diesel specialist with full diagnostic equipment) is a faulty fuel pump - but, they are not 100% sure - so they are suggesting a £500 - 600 bill to maybe cure the problem. I really have no idea what to do for the best on this one, but seesm a bit steep for something uncertain.

    I love reading this Forum - some great ideas for when my Mondy goes wrong! But in the meantime, does anyone have any ideas on my starting problem? I should add that this has been accompanied by a reduction in mpg, starting at around the same time. Beats me!

    'True' mpg figures?

    Mine is around 45 - 46, over all conditions. My trip computer is always overstated and I never trust it. Usually gives out 4 -5 mpg more than actual.

    Happy Easter everyone! Mine would be happier if I new the answer as to why my Mondeo is dodgy getting started. It fires, then hovers around 500 revs for 10 - 30 seconds, before suddenly jumping to 800 revs and allowing me to drive away. Tends to do this from warm. Cold starting is fine. Any ideas please?? Thanks.
