I have 2006 mondeo 2.0l diesel. The ignition glowplug light has just started flashing, while it's flashing the turbo does not work and there is no power but the car run's ok. When the light does not flash i have to rev engine too 2000rpm so the turbo kick in to change gear otherwise car has no acceleration and black smoke is thrown out of exhaust, what could be main cause

the glow plug light on can be a few things but it will more than likely be the turbo actuator. as you have mentioned the turbo that is probably what you will need a new turbo.

No glowplugs would make the car difficult to start, especially on cold winter days, but they're fairly cheap to replace and it's easy to do yourself with the right tools. Have you noticed this problem? But the light could indeed indicate other things.

 

A defective turbo will give you bad smoke and this is an expensive item to replace, even using reconditioned parts. One good way to wreck a turbo is to boot the engine when cold, or just before shutdown, so perhaps there's been a history of this.

 

Maybe get a garage to read the fault codes for a small fee and see what's showing up as faulty. Then you can make a decision on what to fix, if anything.

 

Probably more a question for another forum though - there are loads for Ford owners, as well as general motoring ones like Honest John's.
