Thank you for having pity on an old man! Registration number is
MT10 KMJ Mondeo Zetec TDCi 1.8 hatchback registered 21/06/2010.
Fault occurs pretty much every time I drive although I would have to say it is not constant. When I floor the throttle the car pulls away like the proverbial on a shovel. Don't think this problem occurs under light throttle. Absolutely no fault codes read under diagnostic. Next best advice so far is clean the EGR. Vehicle only done 48000 miles. I don't think this variant has a DPF. Hope this helps.
Thank you so very much for the wealth of information you have given me. I'll get back to you next week when I have had time to do a bit more investigation.
Have a good weekend.
Thank you for the wealth of information you sent me. I have blanked off the EGR valve (albeit leaving a 6mm hole to fool the EMU) and it seems to have done the trick so it looks as though I am saved from costly alternatives. I have considered a remap but I think it's expensive and not altogether advisable.
I shall be delighted to rate your reply as most satisfactory. If we don't need to talk again, I pray you have a long and happy life.
