What is the part called on an exhaust system which is fabric/carbon wool which is under the center of the exh/sys on a FORD GLX Mondeo 1999 Diesel Est. It is torn in half and flapping about and may only be for noise reduction. Or...it may be important ? TIA Tony

It is called the "flex pipe" and it there so keep the exhaust from breaking off manifold bolts as the engine moves up and down when rev or idled so,yes you need to replace it.

How to bleed the fuel system in the 2009 Mondeo after changing the fuel filter on a diesel


You don't. You just crank the engine until it starts. Modern vehicles work on a pressurised system with a return back to the tank. The fuel is pumped from the tank to the injectors and excess fuel is returned to the tank.

Grand vitara RF diesel oxygen sensor location


old post.
in what country.?
smog controls vary by , you guessed it, country.
2 used world wide, diesels.
2.0 L RF/RFM I4 (diesel)
2.0 L RHW/RHZ I4 (diesel)

RF.
did you look first?
at the exhaust header, for 4 pin devices, (sensor) there.
look again. its there.
are you even sure there is ONE?
or just chasing RUMORS?

ever consider buying the FSM for this car.
and now no more wild goose chases?
ask suzuki for the service man.

its really a MAZDA , i think
A direct-injection turbo version (101 bhp) with four valves per cylinder, called the DiTD was introduced in the June 1998 Mazda 626 Wagon 2.0 DiTD. Engine has SOHC valve train with rocker arms and mechanically adjusted screws (no hydraulic valve lifters), with Denso V5 rotary injection pump and Denso PCM.

if it is, then the 02 is at the header collector junction, very near.
the down pipe. or the actual exh. manifold end collector.
like most cars....

Hi, twice our 2011 ford mondeo diesel has been to two different ford dealerships and both times they have carried out perticular burn offs for a blocked particular filter. This has happened in a 3 month...


That is a question you need to ask the dealer. The cause could be you have a rich fuel condition, this causes high carbon particulates and this clogs the filter. If the engine is running correctly then a filter might fix the issue. But I warn you it is big bucks (American slang for allot of money) for this part and the install has to be down by the dealer.

Black smoke from exhaust but computor saying 44.5 mpg around town. 2.0ltr. mondeo deisel


Your duplicate question did not say it was a diesel.
Usually black smoke on a diesel is dirty injectors or the engine temp not reaching normal range.

Truck stalls and check engine light comes on this happens at no certaint time. when the light goes off it starts. sometimes it shuts down while driving and starts back on its own.


is this a diesel or a gas job? has it been tune up lately? if its a diesel I recommend pulling apart the exhaust backpressure sensor on the front of the engine which screws into a tube which goes to your RH exhaust manifold. If its full of carbon and the tube is plugged up, that will cause it to stall erratically and eventually when fully plugged off, it stalls or may not even starts consistently.

Ford Mondeo failed its MOT exhaust emisson test


The advice that the garage gave you seems right. If any bushes were worn they would show up on the MOT Test. Try taking it to another garage to check out the Cat for your peace of mind.
