  2. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Hello All, New member here - I have very recently purchased a 2011 Mondeo Titanium X 2.0 TDCI 163. Recorded mileage 58k so nice and low for the year. I've never owned a Ford and so far very pleasantly surprised at how well the car is put together and drives. I bought the car privately with...

  6. Mechanical (Mk2 Focus)
    Hello everyone, I have a new to me 2005 Focus Mk2 2.0 Duratec which seems to behave quite strangely. I changed the oil and filters at 130,000 km when I bought it, and after 700 km the dipstick showed about 1/3 below max. Thinking I got an oil burner, I kept checking the oil almost daily, but the...
  7. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    I've been hearing a noise when the car is slowing down in gear. Faint scraping noise. Goes when I dip the clutch or press the accelerator. I decided to check my fluids (all ok) and then had a look under the engine cover. Low and behold, an oily pipe. I'm assuming this is a leaky pipe, and I'm...
  8. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Hello Dear Mondeo mates. Last week, having 171000 miles, I have noticed an oil leakage to the right around and below the timing belt area (QYBA engine 1.8 tdci). The oil was spread by air flow, to the right suspension arm and right front wheel fender. The tank oil level is still in limits...
  9. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hello everyone, One month ago I've changed the oil and filter of my Ford Mondeo TDDI. Normal routine, after 10.000km, just oil and filter change. And I saw some oil residues on what it seems the intake manifold? Please see the attached images for better understanding. And I already had some...

  11. 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...
  12. Mechanical (Ka Mk1)
    Hello, everyone ! Im in the early stages of planning how to turbocharge my 1997 Ka. Any info and advice is welcome. So far i figured out that the battery must be moved and the turbocharger placed in that space. Not a problem. The turbo that i was thinking of using is one from a Corsa 1,3...

    Where the heck is the Oil Pressure Relief Valve on my Nov2004 Mondeo 2.0l Duratec? A photo would be great.

    Hi all My Son has a Fiesta 1.6 Diesel. It's got 86k on the clock and a very solid runner It's just passed it's MOT today (no dramas). The mechanic tipped me off to a oil leak coming from the turbo and blowing all over the side and bottom of the engine. He suggested it would be the gasket or...

  18. 1.8L / 2.0L Duratec Petrol Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi, I found oil on one spark plug when I replaced them the other day. From what I can tell with the power of google (and asking a mechanic!), and combined with a very slow oil leak and sooting of the exhaust, this is likely to be all cured by replacing the rocker cover gasket. I don't have a...

    Hi I have a 2004 1.8L Mondeo. Out of curiosity I unbolted the pipe, big round one which goes from the airfilter to the right side of the engine. It sits on a square which is held to the engine with 4 bolts. Looking inside the engine I found that there was quite a lot of black oil residues on...
