I have two fords with the same engine 2.0 140, Ones my mark 4 Mondeo estate and a focus 2.0 140. Trying to change my fuel filter on my Mondeo estate. My focus 2.0 140 engine is right in front on engine as soon as you open bonnet to the let sitting in its own bracket/housing. My Mondeo there is just a gap the only thing there is the fixing anchor for the engine cover. Any ideas? Where it would be?

Under the car behind the fuel tank or top left side of the engine. Depends on the engine

and year.

Probably to put you off changing it yourself?  See it hidden under the car and you may think

just let the dealer do it?

 

I think they moved the powersteering to get the filter up front,  now it's a PITA to

check the steering fluid which is hidden down by the bumper.

 

How hard can it be to pick the best things from over the years and make something

sensible?   

 

Dual mass flywheels WHY!!!  The Triumph Acclaim didn't have one of those with its

Honda engine and they ran very sweetly. Shame about the rust though.

A warning, bleeding the fuel system to enable start is a royal pain in the arse. Do your research before changing the filter or you could end up needing a new starter motor and no further forward.

Hi

Thank you I may sort that out with calling the AA out. I will try first with bleeding system gadget/pump which is getting delivered tomorrow. I’ll make sure I’ve primed housing and new filter with diesel and pumping it through system with said priming pump properly or may even leave to AA gonna sleep on it and decide which action to take. Thank you though.
