Mondeo 2.0 TDCI 52 Plate keeps cutting out on me!!
Has anyone come across this problem before. My 2.0 TDCI Mondeo 52 plate keeps cutting out on me when I'm driving! It will cut out, coast then stop. It takes ages for it to restart, before cutting out again!
Its had a full service recently and the battery is fine!
Thanks in advance!!
maybe a good idea to have the crankshaft sensor tested and fuel pressure checked by a garage
Definitely have this checked asap as this could be the dreaded fuel pump problem and if it gives up completely, the car will stop dead.
I had a mechanic come out, he removed the crank sensor and it was covered in iron filings, so he cleaned it put it back in, and it broke down again about 5 mins later , he did nt have the right part on him at the time.
Now the car does nt start at all, its like it s trying too but it just has nt got "that kick" to it.
I have had similar cutting out problems on my 03 Fiesta TDCI after much searching by a specialist diesel company it turned out to be the crankcase sensor wire.It was old damage but had been covered by a wire protecter during the warranty period,the last place you would look for a problem ! The wire has been replaced and my car now drives with no trouble

Found the problem!!
It was the cam sensor!!!! 55 quid including fitting!! Which I thought was good!
However.... after a week or so it was running fine until it cut out on me yet again, this time on the outside lane of a motorway (which is nt fun trying to pull over).
The car started again ,but I have zero acceleration. When I accelerate harsh it cuts out, when Im standing in neutral it cuts out!
Again any ideas... this is costing me a fortune. I ve noticed that these mondeo s all have similair problems when they get past 130,000 miles
hi these cars do suffer with egr valve problems,the valve itself sticks open letting too much exhaust gas in also internal problems with sensor,good luck.....
Check the wires connecting your sensor. My TDCI was cutting out all the time when the engine was cold and I tried to drive ( it always started and the engine ran as long as I stayed in neutral ) . Once the engine was warm, about 10 mins, I could drive as long as the road temperature was not near freezing. The diagnostic code never displayed any fault.During the warranty period my car was twice called in to have a protecter fitted ( to prevent damage,I was told) The reality I now know was to prevent further damage. I was left with a time bomb as the wire eventually broke down. Finding the damage was a nightmare,because the last place anyone looked for a problem was under a protecter! I urge anyone suffering the cutting out problem to have their wires checked,as I can't believe that I am the only TDCI owner let down by the warranty service I recieved.

It took me and a mate a good few months to find the problem.......i was even driving around with the diagnostic plugged in to see if we could find the problem......but nothing came up.......it was just a process of elimanation. once new fuel pump was fitted.....no more problems!!!
Good luck and i hope this helps
