My mondeo 2.2 2009 wont start its sounds like it goes to catch but then nothing again. Starts with easy start but then very hesitant from idle like it’s going to stall and sometimes cuts out sitting at idle rpm. It starts again straight away after being turned off not cutting out but after 5 mins it’s doesn’t start at all. There is no fault codes at all done with a snap on machine
I must include everything that has been happening from the start:
Cam belt stripped teeth (replaced with new water pump)
Snapped every rocker (replaced everything rocker with tappet)
I changed cylinder head (replaced gasket and stretch bolts to correct torque)
Put all back together with new seals and now I got this I’ve changed fuel filter, crankshaft sensor and even redone the injectors still same problem.
I really need help with this now It’s driving me mad now it’s all I think about ( sad I know)

Compression test maybe required.


Air in the fuel? Uses a length of clear tubing on the low pressured side.


When it does start will it idle properly once warmed? Have you driven it? Power all there

or lacking?


With all that work are you 100% sure the timing was spot on?

Since the engine eventually runs, I’d say that air in the fuel system would be the nr one candidate.

Hello it idles fine I have driven it but on pull away it’s always hesitant at first then after a few seconds it’s like it kicks in the powers through then I change gear and goes through the same process again. There is no air in fuel pipes but after a while the odd bubble goes through the main line which I can’t explain. Timing was spot on I had the pins in flywheel and camshaft.
What I don’t understand is why it goes to catch at first the just goes back to normal cranking over
