General query / worry .

the old bag Ford Mondeo tdci 130 - 05, 155.000 miles, is getting a little lumpy / rough running at idle ( they all are!?) - otherwise fuel consumption ( 60 indicated - more like 47 actual!?) and performance ( replaced turbo actuator - with very good one reconditioned off ebay - still respectable.)

replaced the belt and tensioner a while ago ( twice - but seems to have settled this time as did both pulleys and belt at same time... )

So .... anything need doing apart from oil and those pesky tyres - cheap motoring ( touch wood! )

don't mention the DMF...;-))

oil + oil filter I take it you mean.... would also get new air filter too....give it a dose of archoil AR6400-D clean the fuel system out....apart from that you could replace everything else :)

do your valve clearances have to be checked at x miles?....means taking off valve cover..so maybe leave that one.

might be thinking of cleaning EGR and MAF/MAP etc and intake cleaner for inlet valves if you want to go further

you can get a service schedule for your car from etisford ...pump in your VIN and u should find the link to service schedule or service itinerary

Hi - Thanks for reply.

Yes do regular oil / filter ( every 5k miles or so )

Done fuel and air filter recently.

Blocked the ERG...

Valve clearance Hmmmm

archoil AR6400-D

will try some - seem to be good reviews on Amazon - Not usually a fan of " snake oil" - just give her a good thrashing every once in a while to keep her keen...( turbo clean ;-)) )

I've tried the petrol equivalent ar-6400 and don't t think its snake oil....bewteen using redline SI-1 and the archoil stuff ...went from below 34 mpg to 39 mpg ...def no other changes.....they only work if its dirty mind...can't clean something clean :>)

it does have poly ether amine (PEA) lol..... which is a top cleaning agent despite the name.
