My 53 plate Mondeo's mileage meter that tells me how far I have left keeps changing when I get to about a 1/4 of a tank of diesel. One minute there`s 120 miles left and 10 minutes or so later it could be 76 miles and I don`t know why? Also the mileage return is down to about 38 miles a gallon. Could you please help as it`s doing my box in?

my ford mondeo edge 2006 has now started to have the temperature gauge drop below the needle and has a loss of power. since this has happened the engine management light has illuminated an is staying on permanently. When this happens i stop the car,switch off the engine and wait 5- 10 mins. This is when the engine cooling fan runs for a few mins. When i restart the engine again, the needle goes back to normal position and i could drive for 20 miles and nothing happens then all of a sudden the problem returns again.Please help as this is really really annoying and i'm afraid of damaging the engine

Has it got air on ? If so if the dial is set to the windscreen symbol your air on will be running even without your air con light being illuminated, set the dial for the air to come out the vents or feet and the aircon disables and so should your fan worked for me hope it works foryou too ! john from Warwickshire

Brian, Australia

Ford Mondeo

Last year had a problem where the Mondeo (2009 TDC1 Titanium) would suddenly cut out while driving. Fortunately the couple of times it happened I was slowing down. Ford could not find the problem. It didn't happen again till last week when it cut out just as I was going round a corner in to a side street. Then over the next 2 days it was doing it intermittently. Took it to mechanic who has been servicing the car and he tested it for a few hours but could not fault it. The only error code on the computer he could find as well was P02E1 - Diesel intake air flow control performance. He cleared the code and since then no more problems . Just wondering has anybody else had this problem and if so what was the fix? I do consider it to be dangerous particularly if I was to be in high speed traffic.

Hi I have just bought a mondeo estate 1.8 lx petrol and on the drive home the engine light came on no flashing but its constantly on, I spoke to the bloke I bought it off he said its had a new egr valve fitted but as he's done it on the cheap the codes don't match against ford parts he says this is the cause of the problem, I've been told to reset the car as I've just gone from an old mondeo estate diesel with no problems to a new one I don't know how to do this, could u tell me what ud reccommend and how I'd find codes etc for this car.

Answer this question

andrea, County Londonderry

Ford Mondeo

Hi, I bought a 2002 1.8 LX 2 weeks ago. I test drove it and it was driving perfectly. I brought it home and the oil light came on, checked and it was dirty so usual service was done. So the lights are still flickering on and fading off. Car drives 100% but now the engine lights are on so I`ve done diagnostics and it came up with p0400 code, which led me to changing the egr valve. The engine lights are now off but the oil light`s on still. If that all isn't stressful enough the air vents are lacking power, blowing hard on the windscreen alone and now the fuel gauge on the dash is reading empty even though there is £40 of petrol in it. The car is making a knocking noise from the engine still. Has anyone had problems like this on these cars or any advice on what on earth`s up with this car?

Answers

Hi, I too have bought the 1.8 2001 and that problem with the engine is the same as mine. My engine light too has come on and I`ve only had the car 3 weeks. Did you manage to find your problem as it may help me? harry from Stoke-on-Trent

Mondeo mk3 2004 1.8 petrol. Has a tendency to hesitate ie slight pull back when cruising ,, no lights on, spark plugs / leads / fuel filter / air filter / renewed,, starts ok from cold or hot, but revs at 2500 on initial start.. Could it be the ignition coil?..

Answers

After some research took off the EGR valve,not the best job, need a 1/4 drive socket with a wobbly end to get the angle, take of the air filter housing to get more room..take off the water hose in front of it, be prepaired for knuckle grazing !!!! EGR had some muck inside, scraped the worst off then soaked it in brake an clutch cleaner (twice). Moved the value up an down until it had a nice clicking noise, then WD it, road tested an all good... Michael cramer from Norfolk

Hi, I have an automatic ford mondeo 2001 petrol saloon, the engine management light is on constant, but flashes uphill!, now and again when I've stopped at lights it hesitates for a couple of seconds before kicking in properly, other than that the car runs and changes up & down without issue, the engine isn't noisy (in fact can't hardly hear it), could you advise, as I was thinking possible spark plugs and maybe new coils needed?

I recently purchased a 51 plate ford mondeo 1.8 lx, about 3 weeks ago my car alarm started going off at random times, now it is going off at approximately every 2 to 3 days but it is both day or night. Why is this happening? What can I do to prevent the alarm going off again?

Answers

I had the identical problem, needle in red zone but engine at normal temperature. First garage didn't have a clue except to change thermostat and flush the system. Second garage recognised fault straight away it was a faulty temperature sender unit. he tested it first by disconnecting the wire and earthing it out (which made the temp gauge needle move). Seemingly there are two items that need to be changed sender and sensor units I think) but it was a quick fix and relatively cheap. Terence brown from Cambridgeshire

Andy Lunn, Yorkshire

Ford Mondeo 2002

Sometimes when I`m driving my Ford Mondeo it suddenly feels like it speeds up. The only way to describe it is if you had one foot on the accelerator and one foot on the clutch and when you lift off the clutch the car motion seems to get a slight increase in power. I’ve noticed it a few times, especially if I’ve been stationary with the handbrake on (like at traffic lights) but it`s not immediate, it`s usually about 30 seconds after setting off. Does anyone know what might be causing it?
