Talk:Ford Endura-D engine

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The main article states that Endura TD-DI engines are all fly-by-wire. This comes as a surprise to me as my 1999 Ford Mondeo TD has this engine and what is clearly a cable throttle going from the accelerator pedal to the engine!

I suspect it is FBW in some cars (certain Focuses are FBW) but the generalisation is incorrect.

TDDi in a 1999 Mondeo[edit]

I read the comment above and I am surprised.

To the best of my knowledge, a 1999 Mondeo will be the MK2 shape, and the MK2 Mondeo was not fitted with the TDDi engine (TDDi - Turbo Diesel, Direct Injection).

It was fitted with the older, indirect fuel injection engine, branded "Endura-DE", which has a manual fuel pump, and therefore a conventional accelerator cable.

I know it is a common misconception that MK6 Escorts sold after the release of the Focus are advertised as being TDDi, when they are actually powered by the indirect injection Endura-DE engine, perhaps the same can be said the the Mondeo above

The "Endura-DI" 1.8 TDDi engine WAS fitted to the MK5 Fiesta, the Transit Connect, and the Focus.

TCI 1.8 turbo diesel engine description[edit]

The description of the Timing Belt(s)routing/drive is incorrect. Using the Ford TIS and AutoData 3.17/3.18, and an 'in the flesh October 1999 build belgian Mondeo (ford online VIN decoded and eyeballed) in my garage, there are indeed two timing belts, but both are driven by the crankshaft directly and not in a relay as suggested. Quote: "and the camshaft is driven by a toothed belt which is driven from a sprocket on the diesel injection pump; the pump itself driven by another toothed belt from the crankshaft" Incidentlally the Turbo models I have worked on (Endura DE) have a Lucas CAV DPCN pump and not a Bosch. Fords TDdi, TDDI TDci and other variant badges (look at the badging when stopped at the traffic lights :-) causes considerable confusion and what's actually under the bonnet can only be verified by lifting the lid - even Ford dealerships I have dealth with have been adamant based on the VIN that a particular drivetrain is fitted only to be proven wrong when they lift the lid. This seems to happen during change over of marques ie transition from Mk2 to Mk3 when the Ford parts bin is drained to get as much stock off the shelves as possible.

Mondeo/Escort timing belts[edit]

Indeed the above comment is correct - the belts on earlier Endura diesel engines were both driven from the crankshaft.

Only the Endura-DI has the relay set-up. I must apologise for this mistake (I believe I was the last to edit the article)

With regards to badging, I can only speak for here in the UK, but these were the typical badges available.

In normally aspirated diesel models (Fiesta MK2-MK4, Escort MK3-MK6, Escort van) the badging would either be 1.6 D or 1.8 D (dependant on what size of engine was fitted, the 1.6D would really only be found in MK2 Fiesta and MK3/4 Escort examples unless retrofitted to later models)

In Turbo Diesel models with the "1.8 DIESEL" or "Endura-DE" stamped engines (Escort MK5/6, Escort van, Mondeo MK1/2, Sierra) then typically just TD was displayed, however the sierra was branded 1.8TD

Focus models in the UK did not get engine branding on the exterior of the car until after the 2001 facelift. However, even after this point, TDDi models were typically not branded, and TDCi models were. A small rectangular "TDCi" style of TDDi badge (a chrome rectangular badge with black text) can be bought and retrofitted here in the UK.

I believe Focus TDDi models in other markets were given exterior TDDi badges as standard - some markets used a font similar to the "Focus" embelem, and others used the small chrome badge mentioned above.
