Luckily it's not happened on the motorway or I don't think I'd be here to tell the story. Took it to an auto electrician after having called out the breakdown guy who detected the following codes: PO216 injector/injection timing control circuit, PO335 Crankshaft position sensor & circuit, PO404 EGR valve, PI665 manufacturer's specific fault code. The garage told me he can't fix the problem as he's not sure exactly what's wrong! Advised me to take it back to Ford. Don't really want to to that until I can get a general idea of what's causing the problem as I've been caught out before with the fuel pump and Ford charged 1200 to replace it!
    I had the same problem. Sadly, the fuel was found to be contaminated with iron filings dust emanating from the fuel pump because of wear to rollers and shoes when pump was bedding in. There is a Ford Tech bulletin on it which I found on the Honest John website which is very good. Ford (Inchcape changed 2 injectors , then 2 more before I found the Bulletin after which they found the Tech Bulletin and checked the fuel in the filter bowl and found the metallic dust which gums up the injectors. I then had to find parts as I could not afford a pump and then 4 more injectors. I used partsgateway.co.uk which was very good. I got a pump for 188 incl VAT and delivery and 4 injectors for 240. All now fitted and problem solved, after much expense.

    Sorry, mine is a TDCi. You have the same problem. I have discovered a sensible way ahead but I found it the hard way! After spending a lot of money with the Ford dealership, I went to a diesel specialist, AP Diesels at Englefield Green, Surrey - 0800 195 6409 speak to Vaughan Smith and tell him I sent you. They really know what they are doing and can get injectors direct from Delphi at 130+VAT each, saving about 80 per injector on Ford prices, and fit them for you for about 2 hours labour @ 50/hour. However, you have to flush out the iron filings dust from the fuel tank and fuel lines before changing anything which will put up the labour charge. I got a pump through partsgateway.co.uk which seems to be OK. I also got a set of injectors through their system but at least one is not up to sopec as I get a pronounced diesel knock from one cylinder for the first 1/2 to 1 mile after start up. The pump seems OK and I am going to take the car to AP and get them to put a new set of injectors in and sort the problem once and for all.

    I have tried getting support from Ford for this as they clearly fitted a pump which was not fit for purpose but when the lady from their customer services rang me it was like talking to a brick wall. I wll try Honest John next as he is good a pressuring makers. If not, I will consider taking Ford to a small claims court.

    Let me know how you get on - and good luck!

    i remember when kia had the same problem with there low pressure pumps , they would brake up and send metal filings through the injection system .... and strangely enough they were Delphi as well ..... but we had to change the entire fuel system , tank , lines etc etc .... sounds like Delphi can quite get it right ??

    See my earlier posts under dogorman which explains the most likely cause of the problem and how to get it sorted more cheaply than at a Ford main dealer.

    Default 53 reg Mondeo..fault just developed

    Mines just developed the same fault, at first I thought it was dirty diesel, as I filled up the same day, a colleague filled his bmw the same day and his car had to have the fuel drained a couple of days later as it refused to start, he's had no problems since.

    Can anyone tell me, is this an intermittent fault, it first happened late one evening, I was about to phone the rac when it started fine, the following morning it stopped again but restarted straight away, was OK for about 2 weeks and then failed again, starting 1st time the following morning. Today it cut out at the lights, I pushed it clear of the junction and then it started 1st time... didnt realise how heavy the car was !!! ...blooming electronics !

    Default mondeo woe`s

    Guys i`ve been reading the story`s of the way your mondeo`s cut out for no apparant reason with the light flashing identical to my own and after reading the advice i fitted a cam sensor (no good)i fitted a crank sensor(no good),.
    three months ago some very kind person contaminated my deisil with suger which resulted in major damage to the injectors (which were replaced)i was told thankfully that the pump was ok but the filter would need changing after 1500 miles,would this cause the same symptoms or can someone surgest another course of action ...i await with bated breath
