“Amazing car”

Written on: 02/05/2013 by GarethHale (2 reviews written)

I have owned a 53 Plate Mondeo Ghia TDCi 130ps for over a year now, it is seriously the most amazing car I have ever had. The performance is unbelievable for such a large car, it holds the road amazingly well, and you can transport pretty much anything in it! I have driven it 21,000 miles in the past 13 months and aside from wear and tear (wheel bearing and tyres), this car just does not go wrong, it fires up in 1 turn over, even when its -12c outside! The Sony 6CD Player & Premium sound… Read Full Review

“Injector pump problems”

Written on: 31/03/2013 by mb1963 (1 review written)

I have owned a low mialage 05 plate for four months now and will have to shell out at least £1300 on a new injector pump and injectors. Seems the problem is that the pump breks up which embeds bits in the injection system rendering it useless. This seems to be a common problem one which i was not aware of as the older Mondeos were work horses and one with 75k on the clock as mine did would give you years of trouble free motoring. Ford have deffinately dropped one on this model and i would not… Read Full Review

Do not buy these cars second hand they are death traps.I am experienced driver with 35years driving experience owned and driven every conceivable type of Car, Van, with all engine confiurations and diferrent fuel types. My Ford Mondeo is a 2003 TDI 130 regularly serviced that I have owned for 18 months. I commute 750 to 800 miles a week from Portsmoth to Brentford using A3M - M25 - M4.

Get your injectors reconditioned. Will cost about £75 per injector if you check the net. Make sure you put them back into the same cylinders or you will have to get the ECU reprogrammed. Irregular fuel flow is causing the pressure in the fuel rail to drop. When this happens, a sensor shuts down the fuel pump. This is then reset by switching off the ignition. It's a straight forward enough job to remove the injectors like taking out a set of spark plugs.

hi, if the diagnosis code was p.o 251 this says it is a pump problem but it usually is not, it is a injector fault have them checked for back pressure by shopping around you can get them checked for around £15 and if you are lucky you may only need to replace one, new £200 recon £90,second hand £40. these injectors usually do around 130,000 miles.dont give up on the car they really are a good car.if you really dont want the car I may buy it contact me if in good condition.

I found this review helpful because...it is another case of problems with the diesels systems that Ford have put into their cars. I avoided a ford diesel because a person told me they were not s good as the German diesels I had had. This backs up that advice and I am glad I avoided one.

I bought my 18month old Mondeo TDCI Ghia X in 2006 with 12k on the clock, to replace my 10 year old Mondeo Mk1. I too had the engine cut out once within the first month of driving it, but it never returned; on the whole the car was ok with plenty of power and would average 450miles on a full tank of Diesel . It now has 75k miles on the clock, I will be trading it in for a newer car this month.
I had the following faults with the car, over the 5 years I have owned it.

hi this has recently happened to myself with a 2004 model tdci was driving then suddenly all light and steering went removed from gear and then it burst itno life again itself without warning,i had pushed it into parking bay with great difficulty until green flag arrived,the breakdown came and started car up it was running like nothing was wrong and making me look stupid as it sat idleing,however he made me go too fuel station again for a further 20 litres deisel to add to what i already had so iv now got about 300 miles on the trip system available,as he followed car while i drive in the way he wanted it suddenly then cuts out again and 5 mins later same again,dalm thing,he could not diagnose the problem on the spot.so anyway i left and went from edinburgh to livinston 15 miles apart got half way there before it done it again and again shortly after i finally got there to livingston only to be disapointed on my return the car would not now start from key,breakdown comes out again from different garage and again its not a roadside repair they said,so on the back of the trailer it goes on 2 wheels and dragged back to its homebase in edinburgh,got home pushed it and it started up this is the part were the battery light comes on now not like before but now,any ideas what its doing

“24,000 miles ”

Written on: 25/10/2010

24,000 miles
These cars are a death trap, they cut out without warning with loss of brakes and power steering, engine won't re-start and flashing glow plug light.
Eventually the car will restart only to repeate the problem a few days later.
Ford garages shrug their shoulders and ask you to park them up next to all the rest, say they found nothing, charge you £350 and let you drive away .
Spent £2350 on new flywheels and sensors to fix the problem , guess what. 100 miles later, cut out on… Read Full Review

PeteJ: I have encountered a similar problem . sometimes the glowplug light will flash which gives you a 'get you home' mode with limited accereration. The second part is a fully on glowplug light which cuts all power to 'save the engine' but nearly kills you if in outside lane onf a motorway doing er-hum 70 mph. For both if you stop the engine the start it again you get back full power.... just don't accelerate too fast. Main dealers took ages to find but it a sensor on the fuel injection system indicationg that your injectors are worn and therefore injecting too much fuel. once injectors replaced then problem resolved... occured at 120k miles, car happy at 142k+ miles. Hope this helps.

My 2004 Ghia X estate has 170,000 miles on the clock. It is an ex lease car and has been serviced regularly. It is still on the original clutch and manages around 50mpg on a run, with around 42 in town.
I have recently had to replace the rear wheel bearings, discs, and exhaust.
The only problem that has arisen is that the car occasionally pops out of third gear when coming off the accelerator. Other than these age related problems, I would have no hesitation in recommending one of these cars. I… Read Full Review

I have experienced the same problem as the other drivers. The engine cuts out (definitely cuts out rather than stalls) and the glow plug indicator light flashes. The local Ford garage were unable to diagnose the fault, although were happy to charge for replacing various parts, none of which cured the problem.
My car has only cut out above 50 miles about five times. Most other times have been when the car has just started (ususally first thing in the morning, but not always) and the only way… Read Full Review

Bought a 2002 TDCi Mondeo with 100k on the clock and have had nothing but problems with it. First noticed lack of power, an odd whooshing noise when upping the revs and some stumbling over the autobox selecting third gear - tracked that down to a split Turbo intercooler hose which is a very common problem.
Fixed that problem and now the engine is cutting out sporadically - under high and low revs - which is a safety concern as well as really annoying. Ran numerous diagnostics and got a range… Read Full Review
