If you know that it is the coil. changing it is really easy. you are going to need a 10mm socket with extention. a 7mm socket for the coil mount bolt. first leading bank is number 1-4 front going back( passenger side) driver side is 5-8. 5 is the front cylinder on drivers side. remove the power stearing bracket 3 10mm bolts. coil is right underneath. intake can be removed if you feel is needed. after that there is a 7mm bolt remove the bolt. disconnect the 2 pin connector. pull to remove the coil. the boot may come off if coil hasn't been moved in some time. use pliers to remove it if that happens. blow out spark plug hole with shop air. installed new coil. install 7mm bolt. plug connector in. reinstall power steering mount bracket. good to go.

I have a air ride suspension on my ford expedition 2001 and wonder if there's any way to manually air up the shocks to check for leaks .my ride along compressor is shot.


They eventually wear out. But if you try to replace parts, it will not fix the ongoing problem. You really need to change it to coil suspension. The problem with air ride is the bags will eventually go bad and it cost more to replace them than air bags in the steering wheel. I was lucky. My Expedition had already been changed over

I replace #6 coil on 2001 expedition and a couple of days it started misfiring again.


The answer to that, is that what ever coil you
replaced was the wrong one.

You relied on the PO300 codes too much

Take that new coil out,put the old one back
and start walking the new coil ,until you find the
bad one.

There are other ways of testing but not at home
in the driveway

My 2000 Ford Expedition Triton motor has a skip. It doesn't do it all the time. The code says #6 misfiring. Is this something we can do ourselves or do we need to take to a shop?


You obviously have access to a code scanner so there are some things you can rule out and possibly fix the concern. Number six cylinder on the Exdedition is on the drivers side of the engine, second cylinder from the front. To do a backyard diagnosis, you will need to clear the code. This is easily done by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes then reconnnecting (I'll explain why). Next, remove the ignition coil on the # six cylinder. It is located on top of the engine and has one connector going to it and one small bolt holding it down, and usually black in color. You are marking it so that you don't mix it up. Now remove the # five ignition coil and install it where number six was. Put the marked coil in the number five hole. Connect both connectors.

Now drive the vehicle and allow the engine lamp to come on or to skip (misfire) a few times. Scan the vehicle for codes. If the code changes to a P0305 or # five misfire, then you know the ignition coil is bad. Replace the marked coil, disconnect the battery again to clear the code, then drive the vehicle and verify the repair. Other concerns could be a spark plug, injector, base engine concern or wiring. Good luck, let me know if you need more help :o)
Coils are the most common cause of misfire, especially after rain.

Replaced some coils and still skipping. When I drive the truck skips and shakes alot what should I do about it.


Some coils? how did you know which ones? You need to replace allof the spark plugs and the coils that may be bad. its too expensive to guess, take it to a shop that can tell you which cylinders are misfiring. the coils may not be what the problem is.

2000 expedition 5.4 lt run fine when cold when warm misses bad anyone know whats wrong??


a very common problem for the 5.4 fords is the coil packs going bad. normally misfires once heated up and under slight load ( in overdrive going up a grade) if the check engine light is on, it can help pinpoint which cylinder is misfiring. if plugs haven't been replaced within last 50-60k miles, plan on replacing plugs, and usually the coil pack that goes bad is one of the rear ones, but impossible to tell without a scan tool. if you don't own one, take it to a shop

97 Expedition, 5.4L hesitated during acceleration 40-45MPH. Check Engine light flashed, then stayed on. Would get up to 55-60MPH. All guages read ok. First trouble ever with this car.


go to a parts store and they will let you use their scanner for free. sounds like a cylinder misfiring. The scanner will tell you which one it is.

Location of 7th cylinder on a 2001 ford expedition 5.4


the order of the park pluggs and coil packs is easy it goes:

driver side passenger side
5 ------ 1
6 ------ 2
7 ------ 3
8 ------ 4

1 through 4 is on the passengers side and 5 though 8 is on the drivers side, and all in order.
