My 2.0 TDCI Zetec 52 plate. The temperature guage keeps shooting off to the max on the range but the water bottle is at correct level and the fluid in it feels cool and the fans are coming on but no hot air in the cabin area.
Can anyone help please.
Checked Thermostat and it was not working so changed it, still no change no heat in car and temp keeps rising then drops slightly then rises again and so on. Thermostat from Fords was Â£31.
Tried the filling of the cooling system as detailed in the Haynes manual:.. Pump bleed then running but level in cooling reservoir does not seem to drop much. This is starting to look expensive.
Thanks for the first pointer and I hope you can help me further.
It must be an Air pocket in the cooling system then, not to sure if your Mondeo has any bleed valves but I would run the car till warm open the cooling tank (SLOWLY) and squeeze the big black pipes that go from the cooling tank to the engine with the cap off.
Then replace cap and see.
Air pockets are sometimes a pain and it may take doinjg this a few times.
My 52 plate has just a a new water pump - same symtoms - no heat in the cabin, engine overheating. I tried the thermostat first too, but made no difference. The water pump was working partially so was quite difficult to pinpoint the problem. I paid Â£175 to get a new pump fitted, think pump itself was Â£80.
