Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

'99 Ford Mondeo

I was driving and all of a sudden the Ford seemed a bit too quiet and started to slow down. I looked at the dash and nothing was blinking or panicking or showing cut out. I turned off the radio and realised the car had cut out (still coasting but no power). I thought it had quietly stalld so I tried to restart to no avail. I pulled to the side of the road and tried again and again and finally called the AA. The Rescue chap tried for over an hour to get it going again but also to no avail so I got towed home. He had a look to see if it was the fuel pump under the back seat (there was a hum form that when I turned the key but nothing more), he checked something in the side wall of the front passenger foot well and said there was nothing wrong there. He poured fuel directly into the engine someplace and that didn't work either. He checked every fuse he could find/reach and still nothing.
Does anyone know what the problem could be and how we could resolve it? I'd be very grateful for your help.
Thank you :o)

You have fuel so it must be "no spark" (that is if the starter is turning.) pull a plug and see if it sparks, if not get the coil pack tested at any auto parts store.

How do I rectify erratic needles and lights on Ford Mondeo dash?

Had this problem in a Lincoln. Only car that showed 45mph at a stoplight with brakes on. Odometer kept churning up miles as car stood still. Turned out that Alternator was shorted and although battery kept charge, the alternator case was losing 16 amps into body of car.

I even installed another digital dash. Take off the alternator and have it bench checked.

Having ford mondeo 2006 model 200000 kms run till last week its had a good drive. while running suddenly got break down. its towed and in the auto carriage. they have changed all the spark plus, batter is...


The TPS (throttle position sensor) will cause the vehcile to stall and not start. To bypass the TPS hold the gas pedal down and start vehicle. If the vehicle starts either replace or clean the TPS. FYI--usually start-up sensors will not throw a code such as the TPS (pre-ignition system).

Hope this helps--

The automatic gearbox on my mondeo 2002 changes gears but slips

In the engine compartment, you will need to locate the transmission dipstick. Usually on the left side of the motor, labeled "Trans fluid". Pull it out and check the fluid level. Your problem could be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it. That will make it slip. You fill the transmission right down the dipstick tube.
