1998 ford expedition shut,s off when driving and no code,s

sounds like fuel pump is ready to fail. first check and or change fuel filter. if truck still shuts off then time to test fuel pump. first see if it is running by taking off gas cap and turn on key just one notch short of starting truck. if you hear a hum then your pump is working. but then you may have low pressure. if so then your fuel pump needs replaced. I just did this. its about a 4-6 hour job. go to youtube they have a good step by step video on how to do. good luck

1998 Ford Expedition XLT Eddie Bauer truck kicks/stutters after I take my foot off accelerator at 70mph-why?

You need to have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, if nothing shows then it is very possible you have a failing fuel pump.

Where is the fuel pump relay located on a 2004 ford expediton.

67sunbeam, this is a rather complex system. The actual fuel pump,relay is located in the central conjunction box which is located behind the left kick panel. IT IS NON SERVACEABLE according to Ford. There is an inertia switch inside the left rear cab corner near the bottom. Just push it into the relay, if it was tripped, it will click.There is a fuseable link in the engine compartment next to the battery on the engine side. Aside from that, the fuel pump it self could have connection problems and more. Beyond the simple things, unless you fix cars for a living, it may cost you more to fix it you self than to bring it to a pro.

1998 Ford explorer sport was running fine when it was put into storage for three years. What steps should I take to get it cranked?

Glad you asked the question.

This list will be long as to us anything over 30 days parked is old.

If your not a mechanic we can stop here. Have it towed to your local mechanic shop and start with.

Have all fluids and filters changed. (Antifreeze, Transmission, Power Steering.)
Inspect and replace hoses.
Replace Battery.
Pull and inspect brakes.
Repack wheel bearings.
Pull out fuel pump and inspect tank for rust. (DISREGUARD IF YOU ADDED FUEL STABILISER)
Replace fuel pump Highly recommended. If a high mileage vehicle.
Tires2_bing.gif look at the 4 digit dot code ensure tires are not over 5 years old it reads like this first two numbers are the week of the year manufactured the last two numbers are the year.

This should get you started,

Hope this tip helps.

Congratulations on owning a great Truck.

04 ford expedition loses power

Probably a crank angle sensor, maybe a throttle position sensor, but those usually throw codes out. Could just be a bad computer, too.

My 98 ford expedition will run for 4minutes and kill and wont start for a few hours a mechani changed my fuel pump and filter but its doing the same thing, then he said it could be my coils or my computer...

I CAN tell you that its probably not your coils packs. Possibly yoyur computer if you haven't gotten it fixed yet. But if you have I would like to know what it might have been.

Engine will not

If the engine is turning over then it is either the fuel or ignition fault.When yoy tried to start after 20 minute,you must have flooded the fuel system(carbureter). Once excess fuel had evaporated the truck started.
You try putting fuel cleaner in tank or carbureter and see if it cures it.
