Having purchased the car, on the drive home, it was noticed that the coolant temperature indicated on the dashboard never moved off the bottom stop, except on restarting the car having stopped at a garage to check tyre pressures. The coolant temperature quickly returned to the bottom stop as soon as the car was moving again (Outside Air temp was just +2 Degrees C).</p><p> </p><p>
Subsequent post-purchase inspection has found the following problems to date:<br />
- Induction Air Filter heavily soiled<br />
- Pollen Filter heavily soiled<br />
- Drivers Seat Belt very stiff (Dirt?)<br />
- DTC P0125 reported by FORScan/Vgate iCar - "Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Closed Loop Operation"<br />
- No Radio or Key Codes supplied with vehicle</p><p> </p><p>
The post-purchase inspection is still ongoing. Any further problems will be updated in Car Diaries in the thread "Tacpot12's Mondeo Estate"</p>
