Engine Lights on? Fuel economy lower than it could be? Diagnostic Consultation and Engine Carbon Clean on a Ford Mondeo 2.2 TDCi (2008 – 117,079 miles)

⚠️ Issues you need to diagnose? Vehicle not as quiet, smooth, economical or responsive as it once was?

Here we have a Ford Mondeo 2.2 TDCi TDCi (2008 – 117,079 miles) booked in for diagnostic consultation and Engine Carbon Clean with a frequent engine management light.

The vehicle had already been looked at by a garage who had pointed towards an issue with the cruise control.

🔎📊 Initial diagnostics confirmed a problem with the cruise control buttons and also other codes in other sections relating to components on the steering column or wheel. This all points towards an issue with the wheel wiring harness/steering column. The owner confirmed that it will run OK for a while and then have issues and if you bang the top of the wheel the issues go away again – indicating a dodgy wire or switch. We suggested an auto-electrician take a look to see if there was an obvious fix.

👨‍🔧 On with the clean and the bass note in the engine soon diminished as the vibration subsided and by the end was lovely and quiet, smooth and responsive again.

🗣️ ‘Smoother at low revs. Going to reset fuel MPG and let you know how it goes. Was getting 40-42 over last month’

A few days later…

🗣️ ‘Was as high as 46 now just over 45 so far. Short runs at the mo so will prob increase when back at work tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted’

And a week later once back at work, up to 49mpg…
