I have a mondeo 53 plate 2.0 tdci that has a lack of power and running lumpy

I would be checking spark plugs and plug leads. Also could be petrol injectors, sorry about so much but this could be many things. Billy

Renault 5, 87, fitted new water pump, worked ok for a while, now radiator fan doesnt come on car gets very hot, engine shakes whilst ticking over and acceleration is very spluttery, i need advice

change the rad switch thats in the rad ,that will make the fan work ,as for idle and missing ,i would do a compression check and if iam not mistaken it will need a valve regrind and maybe evan new valve springs .the reason i say this is because by its age i dont think renault used stelite coated valves and valve seats for unleaded petrol so you will have to grind the valves in as they will be all pitted and burnt ,and use a lead additive in future

Miss firing engine and black spark plug

Is it a two stroke machine , do you mix your own fuel.

If so over dosing on the oil component will cause your problem, check for the right mix levels and follow them.

Is the choke going full back to zero ?

Are you running the right type pf plug for that engine, some run hot some dont

Is the engine running smooth or lumpy.
For a four stroke engine

Your engine may either be running very rich or there is wear on the bores causing oil to get to the electrode.

You can obtain a spark plug extender which takes the plug out of the direct line of fire
