Hi everyone

I recently traded in my old Mondeo ST Tdci for a new Mondeo and I ended up purchasing a nearly new 12 plate, 2.2 TDci titanium x sport (200bhp) manual transmission.

Now I don't know if I have a potential fault or it is just the engine as I read a few reviews that said the 200hp engine was a "tad disappointing" - personally I love the whole package apart from this niggle: basically when I accelerate hard the engine sometimes goes flat for a second or so immediately after I change up even though I'm in gear and I've got the accelerator flat to the floor. This happens in any gear and only sometimes. The best way I can describe it is its feels like an automatic gearbox because it takes a second or so for power to really kick in.

Has anyone else experienced something similar on this model - is it in fact normal or is there something I should get checked out?

Thanks for any help.

Dropping below the powerband or turbo spinning down too low between gear changes?

Turbo lag?

How low are the revs when this happens?
