  1. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi, my old faithful Mondeo is starting to play up on cold mornings. Any suggestions you might have would be great - thanks. Its an 05, 2.0 tdci. Cold starting with the glow plugs is fine and if I get out onto a fast main road with normal revs through the gears everything is okay. However, if...
  2. Transmission / Drivetrain (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hello everyone, I just bought a second hand Mondeo MK3 2004 2.0L Petrol Manual transmission with 78.000km driven. I've noticed that shifting gear is sometimes extremely stiff when I start it up in the morning. This morning I had to really put force to put the car in reverse. After a few shifts...

  4. Mechanical (Focus Mk3)
    Hi all, I've got a 61 plate 1.6 focus estate. When the engine is cold and I initially go to drive off the engine drops revs as if it's trying to stall. As soon as the engine is up to temperature it's fine. I've sent it to Ford for a couple of days and they can't seem to find anything and...
  5. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi Guys, I recently bought this Mondeo, first one I've ever had. I am normally driving Volvo's, BM's, but wanted a change and something cheaper. I have to say i am actually pleasantly surprised. It is comfy and roomy. But where i am stuck is; 1. Struggled with starting in anything from -3 and...
  6. Tyre Talk
    When is a tyre pressure cold? The ride of my Mondeo is somewhat sensitive to tyre pressure changes, especially the rear tyres. I check and compensate for the ambient temperature when inflating them. I have noticed how 'cold' ride and handling changes significantly on different tyre brands...
  7. Mechanical (Mk2 Focus)
    Hi all. Just driven a circa 150 run and noticed that when the engine is under load, be it steep hill or hard acceleration, the heater stops blowing hot and the temp gauge moves down half the gauge. No cream under the oil cap when I set off - ill check again when the engines cooled down. Is it...
  8. 1.8L / 2.0L Duratec Petrol Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi all, My mk3 2.0lt starts up fine from cold but as soon as I pull away it hesitates then picks up, it only does it for about the first minute of driving. I have replaced the fuel filter which didn't fix the problem. It also has an LPG conversion and if i start on gas it doesn't seem...
  9. Fuels / Oils / Additives / MPG
    I have a Ford Modeo 1.6 TDCi Econectic '61 plate and in 18 months and around 30k the car has been back to the dealership 5 times, 4 of those in the last 4 month, always with the same problem which I am told is waxing up of the fuel filter, which is not considered a warranty item so I am charged...
  10. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi all, I have a problem when my car starts from cold in the morning. It always starts straight away but lets out some blue smoke for around 5-10 seconds and feels a bit lumpy/unresponsive. When its really cold the car then feels like its missing a bit under partial load. This clears up...
  11. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hi guys, I need opinions, I have just got my car back from the garage today as I had a sticky rear caliper and it caused the handbrake to stick on. They had freed it off about 6 months ago but for peace of mind I asked them to replace the caliper and brake fluid. My concern is that when I...
