Issue: Mondeo 09, 130BHP estate auto. Been reliable until this morning!!
The first issue that I had was engaging reverse at my daughter's nursery - the car started 'shuddering'. I switched off and all was well. Five minutes later turning right to my other girl's school and I completely lost power. The power steering packed up, brakes seemed really heavy and I just had to man handle the 'cruise' into the kerb. Started the engine after 2 minutes and the car drove but didn't feel 'right'. During the power failure the oil pressure light came on but didn't remain on.
I've checked the oil and its fine. I will be taking it in to an independent (Ford are not good locally) and won't be driving my kids around in it again but any ideas as to the likely fault?
Only think I could find on TalkFord was related to an injector problem but no real detail as that person's car was still in warranty. Never felt so helpless driving a car before, if it's been a main road at speed I shudder to think what the outcome would have been!!
Any help appreciated.
