Check the fuel pressure to the fuel rail. if pressure is low, you may have a clog in the line. If the miss is from start up, start with checking your plugs, fouled and proper gap, and wires. If it does not do this until it warms up, could be an injector. check for codes, some times you will have a code in the computer and no check engine light on. P030* is a miss, the fourth digit tells you what cylinder.

2003 Ford Expedition XLT acts like it is starving for fuel. It starts up just fine but once going down the road it then hesitates and wants to bogg down. It has a really hard time on an incline. What could...

You need to install new spark plugs every 70,000 miles

If that was done, then you have a worn out TPS Sensor,
and possibly a bad COP Igniton Coil as well

You will get 1 or 2 coils a year go bad

If it is just on hills, when you have a high vacuum load,
then check out the EGR Valve

Engine seems to miss / sputter between 30 mph and 50 mph. Really noticeable when going uphill at any grade. 2005 ford expedition 5.4l

Hi Nascar2nd.
From what you are describing it appears like an engine misfire.
These trucks are notorious for bad ignition coils.
They don't always set a code either, it depends on several factors.
To check these out in my shop there is a mode in our scan tool called "mode 6". This allows us to look at certain engine data parameters to look at misfire to locate the offending cylinder(s).
Unfortunately without the use of a scan tool you will not be able to see this.
It may be in your best interests to get a shop to look at this for you and verify the bad cylinder.
I have had issues with aftermarket coils and use Ford originals exclusively now. They have also reduced the price of them, good thing too because we go through many.
Might be an opportune time to replace spark plugs as well. worn spark plugs can accelerate coil failure as a worn plug takes more energy to fire.
Thank you for using FixYa !

Missfire 2000 expidition

there isn't a trouble code that indicates a bad coil... there are misfire codes that can possibly lead to a plug, coil, fuel injector, low compression, or a number of other things. it is possible to have 2 more bad coils-if youve had the engine compartment detailed and they got them wet, that'll do it. other than that it is hard to see 2 coils going at 1 time. spark plugs themselves are more likely.
