Hi guys,

I'm new to the site and i was wondering if someone could give me abit of advise. I have a Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 2004 on a 54 plate. It has 208089 miles on the clock (taxi). It's the best car I have ever had an never really given me an faults until now. I regularly keep it serviced even tho it is due one right now. The problem I have is currently there has been a loud tapping noise coming from the engine the last month or so an im not sure where its coming from and just recently there has been a lot of black smoke coming from the exhaust and when I say a lot I mean enough so you can't see through it. Also during acceleration it seems to choke an struggles alittle while still kicking out black smoke. Once I get to 60-70 it still seems to choke even tho I'm not touching the accelerator.

I'd be so great full if you could give me some ideas on how to fix it

Thanks

Mike

Check for splits in the boost hoses first - The likely culprit runs down the front right of the engine, from the EGR to the Intercooler. That would give the smoke, and lack of performance.

Not sure about the tapping noise? Is it like a really loud rattly tractor sound?

Which side of the engine is the noise? Driver side = Belt tensioner or crank pulley or both,

Failing that maybe a noisy chain.

Passenger side = Clutch / DMF issue. Dont skimp change the whole lot unless your doing that then flogging it.

Can cost more in labour than the parts. So seems silly trying to save £60 on a slave then paying £300 labour to fit it in a few weeks
or months.

the tdci is a little noisey but the clanking is probably down to an intermittant injector fault .this is usually down to a duff injector of two and this would also explain the smoke as black smoke can be produced by a badly fireing injector however it can also be caused by a bad pump and in some cases by a faulty timing chain ...so i suggest first after chnaging out the fuel filter to eliminate that as a cause to have the motor checked at a delphi or ford fuel specialist or even check back in the archices here and do a leak off test yourself its a little bit fiddly to set up but quite dooabel as many others on here have proven ..s

Hiya guys,

Thanks for your replies!

I took the egr valve off today and give it a good clean as it was full off dirt. While I had it out I notice there is a slit in a big fat rubber pipe that runs out of the egr valve an down towards the bottom of the car by the radiator. I'm guessing this is the boost hose that you spoke of danwfastford. Is that actually called the boost hose as I rang my local ford dealer to see how much a new one was an they wasn't fully sure which pipe I ment on my discription but said if it was the pipe he thinks it is as its the most common to go he said it would be between £60-£70. Does that sound right to you guys?

In response to the ticking noise it reminds of like the noise a cricket makes lol. Its hard to pinpoint where the sound is actually coming from. So I'm honestly not sure what it may be. One thing tho is you can generally only hear it while it's idling or at low revs.

Thanks ago guys for your help so far.

Mike

If I was to look on eBay, what would the part be listed as? As I don't know what the real name of it is.

Thanks,

Mike

This may be a silly question but I'm not mechanically minded so feel the need to ask lol am I not just able to stick some sort of tape round it to repair it that way?

No mate. It's been tried but not too much success with it. Too much boost running through it for it to last. It's an easy swap if you get a pipe you could do it with a screwdriver.
