Cookie_2013 posted a topic in Ford Mondeo / Vignale ClubOk So I am new here and I have been searching the forum for an answer to this but to no avail. Apologies if this has been previously posted and answered. My Mondeo starts absolutely fine from cold and shortly after stopping. The problem I have been having is after the vehicle has been parked up for about 4 hours. I turn on the ignition, let the glow plug light go out and crank. The engine just cranks and cranks but wont start. The occasional judder like its trying to fire but doesn't. Sometimes it will eventually start. No warnings or lights on the dash indicating any problems. When this happened last week the battery almost died from cranking too much. I decided to put a new battery on the car because I suspect that it is the original battery and I had heard that a poor battery could cause it to turn over too slowly and cause problems. So now although the battery seems ok and the starting is a bit better, after this period of about 4 hours it still takes a long time cranking to get it to start. I am going to run a diagnostic test tomorrow and see if there are any fault codes but I'm not too hopeful as there are no warnings on the dash. Does anyone have any suggestions or know of what is causing the problem. Its a great car but I'm feeling that its a bit unreliable at the moment. Thanks in advance
