What doesnt work ? the turbo ,
they arnt the most powerful engine in the world but reliability is outstanding subject to oil , filters and cambelt changes, at the correct intervals,
the engine should give good mid range touque with a little smoke , if it doesnt the chances are the wastgate on the turbo is leaking especialy with the milage , but to be fair on a car that age i would probably put up with the lack of power than spend money repairing it providing its running ok

My ford mondeo 1.8 turbo deisel fails to start on mornin but once it started it runs drives mint an start every time


Hi This problem is usually caused by one or more glow plugs not working, these glow plugs heat
the combustion chamber which is nessersary for a cold starting ( the first start of the day ).
Its best to replace them all as they may be all the same age. they are not to bad to replace just
be carefull not to over tighten the small nuts which hold the electrical connection.
I hope i have been able to help you

Hi i have a 97 ford mondeo 1.8td and it feels very under powered and i cant feel the turbo cut in atall but can hear it whistle on changing gear.can you help please?


I had a similar problem in my Mondeo 1.8 TD a few years ago and this was cured by changing the engine oil and filter to the correct type.

I had used the special Duckhams 10w-40w Turbo Diesel (or was it 15w-40w?)  oil but once I changed it to the correct Ford 5w-30w (Formula-E ) ordinary oil, the turbo worked a treat every time.( I understand now that there is an even "thinner" option that works even better so worth checking ....Something like a 1w-30w )

A strange answer I know, but true

The only reason I used the Duckhams was because the chap in Halfords said it was the best one for a Turbo Diesel

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.


do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
