It appears that your Ford Mondeo is running on limp mode. Knowing if the Check Engine Light is on may assist in pointing us in the right direction of the cause of these symptoms. It is possible that the fuel pressure regulator is not allowing proper fuel pressure to reach the fuel injectors resulting in a loss of power. It is also possible that the fuel pump itself is starting to fail and is unable to supply the necessary fuel pressure needed to keep the vehicle running efficiently.

However, to be 100% certain I would recommend enlisting the assistance of one of our certified technicians to come by and diagnose your drivability issues with your Ford Mondeo. They will have the experience and tools needed to identify why your vehicle is experiencing a lost off power. They will also be able to assist you with getting the repairs needed to get your Ford running reliably again.
