  1. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi guys!! I've recently removed all my injectors, had them ultrasonically cleaned, new seals and pipes refitted in a different order and reprogramed. when running normally this has had a wonderful effect, the engine is quieter and smoother, ignoring the problem I am having with the aux belt...
  2. Mondeo Mk3 General Discussion
    Hi all. I recently fitted a new EGR valve to my car (Mondeo Mk3 2.0 tdci (2006)), which has solved one problem with it - tons of white smoke and flat-spotting/loss of power. I also fitted a new, grey-type CPS, which was a recommendation, as the grey type are less likely to fail than the...
  3. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    My MK3 ST is kicking out a bunch of light grey smoke when I start it up after a day or so of inaction. And then will come out in smaller amounts when I change gear. I have lost some power - noticeably when I change up a gear a little too early. I can floor the accelerator after the gear...
  4. Mechanical (Mk2 Focus)
    Hi all. I bought a new (to me) Focus which I love, but it comes with a problem. Well, actually it has a few which have surfaced, but the one which needs sorting is the cloud of blue smoke when cold. When I start the car in the morning or if it's been sat all day at work (so when it's cold)...

  6. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Hi All. I have a 2010 Mondeo 1.8 tdci zetec that is really trying my patience. About eight months ago it started to cut out when it came to parking outside the house after driving. It's getting progressively worse as it now does it when moving off onto a roundabout, parking at the shops and...
  7. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    I've had this issue for months now. After a a long run at 70mph (ish) and stopping at traffic lights or a built up area my car smokes like crazy from the engine bay. I presume it's a dpf regen. Why the heck is it smoking from behind the engine tho? Here is a link to a video I took today. This is...
  8. Diesel Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi guys, Hopefully I'm just being paranoid... I only see white smoke under acceleration at night in cars lights behind me. The rest of the time it doesn't smoke, idles fine and pulls like a train. Should I be worrying about anything or is this normal? Cheers Dunk
  9. Diesel Engines (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Hi All, I have noticed white smoke coming from the exhaust when accelerating hard from traffic lights. Also I have noticed the white smoke when car is stationary and idle especially when cold and at night. It is a very thin white smoke that I can see in my back window, almost like a steam...

    Hello everyone! I drive a Ford Mondeo MK1, trim variant GLX, manufactured in 1993, powered by 1.6 cmc 16v Zetec E engine. The car has no air conditioning fitted, only the standard heater blower. My heater resistor pack failed to work so I disable it in order to be replaced with a new one. My...
  11. 1.8L / 2.0L Duratec Petrol Engines (Mondeo Mk3)
    Hi, I bought Ford Mondeo mk3 with 1.8l duratec he engine. And I have noticed that car has been throwing blue smoke when accelerating from coasting (deceleration). I know that it's burning oil and it may be a stuck pcv valve, bad valve stem seals or bad piston rings. If the valve stem seals were...
