I'm new here. I used to be a car nut in Australia but here in France, I don't have the tools nor the space to fix my cars as much as I used to. Thankfully I have a friend who does.
So I have a Mondeo turbo diesel (Mk3, 2.0 TDCi, 130hp). I LOVE this car. Such a licence-loser.
She's done 330,000km (45K with me). Had a few troubles at first, and it's much more challenging to try and work out the name of the parts in French. Don't get me started. At least 'alternateur' is similar.
I had a read of the posts here about the glow plug light flashing. From what I understand, it could be one of three things: build-up of gunk in the inlet manifold and the EGR, fuel (filter, injectors and whatnot), or the turbo itself.
Is that right? Is there anything else I've missed?
I'm going to start with the EGR and inlet manifold. This is mainly because she blows a lot of black smoke when I put my foot down. Considering her mileage, should I get a new EGR instead of cleaning it, just in case the old one is effed?
