Question about 2010 Ford Mondeo 1.6
Vehicle came in for an oil change. Actual mileage 85000 kms and last service done at dealer at 60000 kms. We changed the oil filter and oil (5W30) and when starting the car, the lifters are noisy. No DTC recorded and engine management is SIM 29 Ti. Car runs and drives smooth except from the noisy lifters.
Hi, the lifters can be noisy of luck of oil. Check what oil should be used on your car specification. If they still noisy that mean you need to replace them.

Testimonial: "Hi Fouzis, thanks for reply. Oil specs for that engine is 5W20. This engine is also fitted on Ford Focus. Car runs fine, no excessive smoke emission,checked on spark plugs and they are fine and no DTC. The only thing is, service inspection are at 20K intervals which to my point of view too high for our petrol quality. The last service was done at 60K until this one at 85K (25K in between them). I am leaning towards sludge in the system. Any help?"
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or
ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do
a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.
Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.
I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!
Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: How do I change fuel filter.
run a fuel pressure test, and check the fuel pump relay, in the underhood power distribution box, if relay is good and you have power at the pump with no fuel pressure then you have a bad pump

Places that service motorhomes want to make the bigger bucks. Do it yourself. Its just a drain plug and filter removal. They have a large oil capacity but if you have changed oil before on other cars go ahead and do it. If it sits high enough off the ground you will not need to raise it. Get a good oil change pan that holds 8 quarts. It may take that much.

Ok, lets take this from the top. I have a 97 f250 diesel. In mid may mine did the same thing. It's either one of two things. You have under valve cover harnesses (uvc). They slide in under your valve covers, you will see two wiring harnesses on the outside of the valve cover gaskets on either side of the block. Ok, it IS possible one of these slipped out of place and killed two of your injectors, causing the horrible running/ low idle/no power/ sounds like the truck is going to stall symptoms. The easiest way to check that is to unplug the wires while the truck is running and see if it kills the engine, if it doesen't unplug the other one on the same side of the valve cover. If both of these don't cause any change then you have a bigger problem, the IDM (Injector drive module).
FAIR WARNING: When you unplug the wires with the truck on it is extremely dangerous, it is 110 volt feed. It can kill you.
OK, the IDM is a silver box, 8"x10" approx dimensions, located on the driver side under the hood, over top the front tire. If you take the wires you unplugged and take a multi meter to them and they are dead, you have a bad IDM. This was the case with my truck. Ford designed the IDM to have a hole in the side to allow condensation to escape from it, unfortunately, this allows water inside and will short out resistors and practically kill half of your engine. Buy a new IDM on ebay for about $380. It takes 5 minuts to put it in.
I hope this helps you out man.
