Customer Question

Hi, I have a 2003 2.5 V6 Mondeo, recently its started to make what sounds like a 'Worn Bearing Hum' which is normally only noticeable once the engine is warmed up but its not continuous, even when the car has come to a halt the 'Loud Humming' can still be heard for a short period. Usually when the 'Humming' starts the car will run suddenly run a bit rough (like when a fan cuts in) and just recently the cars power is cut, resulting in having to re-start the car!

Do you get any fault lights on at all? No, nothing.

Have any checks / tests at all been done with regard to this issue? No.

Hello again Russell -

Thank you for your reply and info..

Ok, this is a known / common issue with this model / engine - Check the pipe that comes out of the air pipe - the one from the air box- the convoluted one - this often gets blocked / clogged/ perishes etc...

If its not that , often what is done is to replace the pipe with a standard piece of "heater hose" - which is a lot longer than the original fitted - and this itself cures the noise.. a noise that is often referred to as "moosing"...

I will give you a pic to help you too - compare this with yours and you can see the situation / what is done re the pipe if still needed.

Its also a good idea to clean out the air breather / idle control valve at the same time -

Here is the pic I mentioned -
