I've purchased a Mondeo estate... on a 53 plate. 2.0 TDCI.
Seems to run fine, day after I bought it EML has come on. I dreaded scanning it in fear of an injector problem. Turns out the EGR valve has taken a dump. Engine was running erratic and lumpy and also a bit flat. Unplugged said EGR valve and car runs a hell of a lot better. Thinking im just going to blank the EGR Valve.
Seems to be an alright motor. MOT due on May 5th. Seems solid, though tracking needs to be adjusted.
Will update with pictures.
Only weird thing I've noticed is: the windscreen washers. If you pull the stalk towards you the windscreen gets wet but the front wipers don't move, push the button on the stalk, the pump makes noises. Nothing happens but the front Wipers go.... Strange. Suspect this will need to be sorted before MOT. Rear Wiper seems to function fine, rear screen doesn't get wet either way.
