  1. Ford Ka Mk2 Forum (2008+)
    Hi, A few months ago I noticed my coolant level was dropping a little every time I checked it (once or twice a month, I know I should be better). It seemed like nothing too crazy, so I topped it up twice with some coolant and water. I've been checking it since then and the level appeared to...

    So guys I've just bought a Mondeo Ghia X V6 3.0 (MK3) - Need help with under the hood though. What coolant is recommended for this car? Also oil? Don't want to blow up on me in the first few months of ownership :biggrin: Thanks in advance
  3. 1.6L to 2.0L Zetec Engines (Mk1/Mk2 Mondeo)
    I recently changed the engine coolant on my 1998 Ford Mondeo Mk2 and had some trouble finding the radiator drain plug. There's a photo of the radiator drain plug in the Haynes manual (Ford Mondeo 1993 to Sept 2000 Petrol) on page 36. But to me that photo doesn't give much reference and it's...
  4. V6 'Duratec' Petrol Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hello there guys :) I've searched the forums, but can't find any problem quite like the one I experienced today. The car: 2003 Mondeo V6, 256,000 km After about an hour's driving at town speeds, I went shopping (12 minutes according to my son, certainly not enough time for the engine to cool)...
  5. 1.8L / 2.0L Duratec Petrol Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    So, As of a few days ago i now own a mk3 mondie. it sounded fine during the test drive (aside from some noise from the back which is bearings or a sticking handbrake) and because it had run i couldn't check the oil level. I just had the idea to go check everything i could get to (oil, power...

  8. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hello folks, hope you all had a very good Christmas! So, I went on vacations this weekend to the north of Portugal. It's cold at the moment over there, probably 0ºC at night and 9-10ºC during the day. Yesterday I didn't use the car so I checked the fluid levels as always do when I go on a trip...
  9. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hello everyone, Currently I'm running into some kind of mistery about my car. I have a Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDDI 115ps. Today morning before I leave to work I checked the oil level. I take the dipstick first, clean it up so it doesn't give false measurings. The oil was above max level. I double...

  11. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi all, my first post here. I'd like to ask if the community of fellow Ford owners has any idea what the heck is wrong with my -07 TDCi 130 hp Mondeo. It's a long story, but I'll try to make it quick. I bought the patient in August. It has about 300 000 km on the clock, but it seems to be...
  12. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi All, Hope someone can help. So I'm not knowledgable about cars but I'm currently fixing mine with the help of my partners Dad. Basically I have a leak on the metal engine coolant pipe underneath the drivers side of my MK3 Mondeo Estate 2L. Was a small hole and now it's a big one and I...

    Hi all, hope this is the right place for this, apologies if not. I've got a 2009 Mk4 Mondeo Titanium 1.8 TDCI and to be honest, had nothing but issues with it since I got it but the latest one is a head scratcher. Its developed a coolant leak and also the engine warning light has come on. I...
  14. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Tried to drain cooling system today on my 2007 mk4 2.0 TDCi but I wasn't sure which hose to disconnect to get the stuff out. Apparently there is no drain plug as I understand from reading elsewhere. Would anyone be so kind and describe procedure of draining coolant in few words?

    Hi, new to the forum. My girlfriend just bought a 2004 Ford Ka 1.3. had no coolant in when we bought it but just topped it up, then drove it back about 50 miles, no problem. She drove it the other day round town for an hour and a half and when she got back it was red hot and making a popping...
  16. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Need some expert advice please... car is a 2006 TDCi 115PS manual, Euro IV (I think). I changed BOTH thermostats because I thought the car was running a bit too cool, so I assumed one of them was stuck open. The oil cooler stat I did while I was clearing out the inlet manifold and EGR (highly...
  17. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    2006 2.0 TDCi Edge 115PS manual I've been using Torque to monitor coolant temp, it varied between about 82degC to 92degC on a gentle amble around the countryside the other day. On my 2013 Focus 1.6 TDCi the temp tends to get to 90degC and then stay there no matter what. In your experience, do...
  18. Mechanical (Focus Mk1)
    Hi again, I seem to have a problem with my focus and it's ability to retain water... I have narrowed down the offending area to the Thermostat housing, water seems to be pouring out from the bottom/under it. I have checked the pipes and all seem to be fitted properly, un-damaged and leak free...
  19. Mechanical (Focus Mk1)
