comment Mondeo 2.0 litre 2000 model
You'd really need to give more information as this could be various things. For example, what did you repair? What do you mean by service engine? What do you mean by jerk? engine misfiring maybe?

comment Are classic cars safe?
Mason - too many driver aids make you less alert and more likely to have slower reaction times. Nick is correct here. Various bodies such as the RAC and IAM in the UK support the position Nick has outlined.

comment Why is a flywheel important to a car?
The downvote was actually mine - I was going to come back and comment. The flywheel itself doesn't have to be connected to the starter motor cog, and on various cars it isn't, so while in some cars they have decided to put teeth on the outside of the flywheel to make it part of the starter transmission, that is not what it is for.

comment Headlight and dome light flickers
Oh - it flickers with the engine off? I'd suggest in that case the most likely cause is your battery being old. Try replacing it.
