Default '01 Mondeo 1.8 Question


I have an '01 mondeo lx 1.8 petrol. I recently found out about the problems with the butterfy valves in the inlet manifolds in the 1.8 and 2.0's in these models.

I've noticed a 'rattle' sound coming from the engine and decided to get it checked out. I was told my a main ford dealer that the butterfly valves are not working properly and to fix the problem i will need to replace the whole inlet manifold and was quoted at €600 - €650.

Since getting this quote i've read that the problem can be fixed by just replacing the valves and not the whole manifold, obviously greatly reducing repair costs. Has anybody had this done or can point me in the right direction?

Any help will be appreciated,

Have the same, a 01 1.8 lx, ,, check your oil levels. A lot of the time, it's mis-diagnosis. Sometimes its a solenoid hitting off the firewall ( bulkhead ) and rattling, other times it can be rings. Check all these first, but the whole unit has to be replaced as far as I know. Thankfully mine is as sound as a pound!! Doesn't miss a beat.
The Game, you just lost it.
