    It's time top start rebuilding Mike's beloved Ford Mondeo ST200, with the 2.5-litre V6 now gleaming and the body ready to receive a whole bunch of refreshed and renewed parts. This thing is going to be an absolute minter!

Hoping to get some help from fellow car guys. I've had an Opel Astra H for a long time, it had issues with EGR, kept choking regardless of how clean it was, couldn't fix it so I bought a newer car, a Nissan Qashqai, same issue, but even worse. I'd like to know if anyone can help me figure out how to bypass this or fix it or replace it with a better filter, or modify the filter somehow, I don't know what to do, please guide me, I'm tired of going to the mechanic EVERY OTHER DAY, any help is appreciated. Thanks

That car is sweet, the Contours weren't super popular here, kinda wish they were. I always liked the SVTs. Also the drive train in my F250 is massive, that one is normal size.

Having owned a 2000 SVT Countour (the US version of this car), I cannot tell you how many times I have dreamed of doing this to the car. They are so underrated. Thank you for this series!!

I feel an opportunity was missed to upgrade certain elements, improved brakes, new coilovers, polybushing, upgrading the power from the engine too. It looks lovely, but I think more could have been done.

Agree and disagree, its a hard one, I have one and I just had to add a straight through exhaust but the car really dousnt cry out to be modified. ford got it right.... apart from the brakes. modified examples do normally look distasteful and it just becomes a shame. morette lights :( :( yuk

I would love to see a bypass oil filter. They put 10% of the oil flow through an ultra fine sub-micron filter so the oil is always polished clean.

For anyone in the Burton-on-Trent / Derby area CJ Ward enamelers are a top team for powder coating. The metal is phosphate primed before the powder goes on. They are also great for alloy parts. Ive not been paid to say this.

@Kieran Pons Not entirely bud. One is right-side drive, one is left side drive. ;) I was only surprised since Europe has different regulations and thought there was going to be some differences because of those two factors.

Sadder news. Richard Parry Jones, the man who made ford cars actually handle again, died very recently. The man was an engineering legend and total petrol head. We've him to thank for the epic handling of the Mondeo and then subsequent focus and fiesta cars.

It was a nice car when it was working, albeit a little thirsty. By today's standards it is a pretty light weight car. The things that really stood out from memory was the faster steering rack and the lighter flywheel. The car was much more responsive to input than the rest of the range. Would I have another one.. no.

I have a question! I work on airplanes, and some companies to such thorough restorations on aircraft that they are legally referred to as new again and the Total life of the airplane gets re-set to zero. Is there a process like that on cars to legally reset to 0 miles? Would this thorough process qualify?

17 päivää sitten

No its illegal to reset the clocks, the engine is still original and as such whether it had new internals or not, the block itself has still had that mileage placed onto it.
