Hi there ,good evening to you and sorry for the delayed responseOk the most common issue we see with the mk4 Mondeo 1.8/2.0duratec -HE Engine emitting a crank No fire when warm is a faulty fuel pump (In the tank )In some cases we see issues with the multiplug and sender assembly pinsYou can now buy the fuel pump / sender and a small wiring loom that can be cut/wired into previous wiring To clarify this the fuel pressure must be checked on crank when the fault is present as in most cases the fuel pressure is too low to start the engine until left to Cool down If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me knowIf you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advicePLEASE RATE MY ANSWERKind regards ***** ***** and have a nice evening Brian
