I have recently bought a Ford Mondeo L Reg 1.8 16v, and all

It would be helpful if you photoshopped a red arrow pointing to the
sensor. Visually, it looks a lot like an oil pressure sender or A/C
pressure. I say follow the pipe it's connected to and see where that

pipe. My guess is some sort of pressure sensor.
I never said it would, and I never said it wouldn't. You won't know unless
you try. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.
Would you rather invest 15 minutes, try it, and know if that was it or
wasn't? If it is, problem solved. If it isn't you can move on and try
You can pay a competent mechanic hundreds of dollars to fix that plug for
you, plug it in, and tell you that was the problem.
Please forgive the people here who tried to help you. Heaven forbid they do
not know exactly how to help you.
If you want help, either change the attitude or go elsewhere.
There wasn't a point when I wasn't calm.
Try my suggestion. If it fixes it, good. If it doesn't, you didn't loose
I do have one question, however. How do you warm it up if you can not keep
it running when cold?
