Hi there good afternoon to you

Ok the red warning triangle is the engine malfunction indicator
Thus meaning a fault has occurred within the engine management system

Ok the FIRST  thing that must be done before going any further is a diagnostic fault code check of the PCM 
This is imperative to correctly diagnosing this fault right first time and saving you a lot of time and Money 
As misdiagnosis of this engine can be expensive 
The engine management system is very complex and technical on the Mondeo
Thus why a fault code is an absolute must when diagnosis

The most common causes are DPF issues
(Diesel particulate filter ) either blocked or restricted

The exact cause will be clarified by a fault code check
