🚗 Here we have a recently acquired Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (2009 – 139,366 miles) booked in for diagnostics consultation and Engine Carbon Clean after being referred by a prior customer.
ℹ️ Although no apparent running issues, the owner was aware the parking sensors were not working.
🔎 Initial inspection found little of note in the engine bay with no obvious rattling, leaks or wobble, just the tell tale bass note from engine vibration from carbon buildup.
💻 Initial diagnostics showed a number of historic codes present:
🔸 Right rear outer parking sensor (which reappeared when cleared)
🔸 Bulb codes which cleared
🔸 Numerous codes for cruise control and steering wheel controls. These would indicate a potential issue with the steering wheel electrics, but the owner had not yet used the cruise control function so was unaware.
📊 Live data showed coolant temperature in and around 90°C and when testing the thermostat it only dipped to 86°C indicating the thermostat was good. DPF data showed low backpressure, just 13 miles since the last regeneration, but a running average of 360 miles between regenerations indicating a healthy DPF.
👨🔧 On with the clean and the bass note in the engine soon dissipated as the engine smoothed out and quietened down and by the end was quiet, smooth and responsive again.
