Hi. My old man has a Mondeo MK1 1.8, he lost all his water on the M25. F****d up the cylinder head. it was caused by the metal water tube under the front left side of the engine. it had corroded and burst. I'd say check the condition of yours ASAP. A £10 bit of pipe could save you £££hundreds.

Bloke at garage said "thats the second this week!"

Is the MK2 2.0L the same. i have not got under mine yet.

The blacktops have a similar tube and they do start to corrode around the bracket that holds it on, Mine had just started to rust so I cleaned it up an painted it up

Is this the pipe that runs just behind the offside wheel splash panels ?

Cheers.
