Please help, and thankyou for reading.
Quick overview: I bought a 2010/2011 Tdci 2.0l mondeo in Australia. I've only done about 2000km and it's given nothing but issues.
Please help give thoughts what could be the actual cause:
I have multiple dash lights, and using forscan, multiple error codes i will cover below. I am almost inclined to think either many small issues, a wiring issue/issues, or, bad electronics as if it got driven into water and fried some electrics.
Straight after i bought it i got all brakes done straight away (rotors and disks). Then, within small amount of km, i got occasional ESP warning light and shunting loss of power/car jerks as if traction control kicks in, car tire mark dash light.
Turning Car off/On would seemingly fix it. Came and went for about 500km.
Then at about 1400km dash warning light came and went.
Incorrect conditions for DPF regeneration
Lost communication with body control module
(Occasional error message) relating to communications to steering wheel sensor angle
And occasional error message relating to ABS module/sensor.
And, a fuel pressure High warning error.
Car also becoming harder to start (taking longer to crank).
Then dash check engine light came on, and major loss of power all the time.
I read up on the DPF, and read about blockages, the car has done 180,000km, and issues with DPF vaporizer. Forscan showed soot/loading levels around 250%.
So i booked to garage, asked they do fuel filter, oil change/filter, and a dpf static regen. They said all done.
3km from leaving garage, check engine light, major loss of power.
(Maybe) solved so far:
It seems the check engine light mainly came on for the DPF soot accumulation, and forced limp mode hence loss of power.
I removed dpf vaporizer, all looks good, and cleaned DPF. Soot and load levels down to about 170%.
Now, i also get Low fuel pressure error, and fuel leak at the back of car from the fuel filter from where the shop maybe did a poor job.
Also, much harder to start, likely due to air in fuel line due to fuel leak at filter due to filter change done poorly by shop..
Where i am at now:
I intend to change fuel filter housing with one from a wrecker, hopefully fix fuel leak at filter housing. And, change out ABS wheel sensors on each wheel.
One concern, on two test runs, engine check light came on, and slowly engine just ran down and died. Starting up started okay and seems mostly okay. I think maybe due to loss of fuel pressure due to the leak.
I wish i knew what was happening with the electrics, especially the ABS/ESP light, having it cut power and basically jerk the car is a massive safety issue such as if crossing traffic.
Please give any thoughts, seems like never ending issues 1 after the other, wish i never bought this car, i have never experienced so many individual faults.
