Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Ive got a 2004 ford mondeo 2.0 tdci 130bhp, the reg is EO04 XAB...weve just replaced the clutch, got everything back together having some trouble getting it to start, doesnt seem to be getting any fuel through but after turning it over a few times the battery is knackered so have to charge it up again over night, thats been how its been for the last 3 or 4 days, still no luck. Any advise on that would be very helpful.....but my main concern is that we had to move the car out of my father in laws garage this afternoon and it wasnt going to start so we started to push it out, it had a flat tyre and felt like the brsakes werte binding abit so i thought i would try to loosen it of abit so we would beable to push it easier...so i put the gears in what i thought was the reverse gear and turned the key without depressing the clutch and so expected it to jump backwards abit on the key but got a big surprise when the car jumped forwards....so had to select neutral and just push. Weve got no idea what weve got wrong...only thing we can possibly think might be the cause is that we might have connected the shift cable and the selector cables the wrong way round, because it seems like everything is the opposite way round. Could you help us withany advise possible please because we havent come across anything like this before...Thankyou very much in anticipation of your early reply...steve & maxine.
Complain to the mechanic-if he won't help-call the local business authority about misconduct. If you paid for the job then it should be done correctly. An overseer will make sure both parties are being honest about their side and see that the correct action is being done.

Had car checked again at dealership. They stated they checked the charging system and battery would not hold a charge. Found a bad cell in the battery. The alternator was working fine. Battery replaced. Car has been starting fine since battery replaced.

look under your dash driverside at your clutch pedal and there should be an arm that goes through the firewall and to your pedal if it is disconected reconect it if not then check your clutch fluid

Hi, your clutch has likely drawn air into the hydraulic line. Check the reservoir on the clutch master cylinder (near the brake master cylinder). If low, top it off and check for a leak either above the clutch pedal or at the slave cylinder on the transmission. You will need to repair the leak and bleed the system to restore proper operation. If you have more questions or need repair instructions, please let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.
