Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

2 Answers

My 2001 Expedition died earlier this week after I only got a few miles from the house. We towed it home and replaced the fuel pump that we thought went out. It still won't start. The fuel pressure is good and it's turning over. What else should I check to figure out how to get it running?

It may be your catalytic converter. Was the truck starting to be intermittent and hard to start and sputtering prior to this problem? If so that maybe your problem

HI Mate, must be frustrating. You need to check that you have spark to the plugs. Is it fuel injected? If so you need to make sure the injectors are firing ( as my vehicle died for apparently no reason - I had fuel pressure but there was no injector pulse due to a faulty immobiliser) Then it should run. Most probably no spark. A loose wire or blown fuse. Good luck, hope this helps.

What makes 2001 Pontiac Montana stall and die while driving, speed doesn't matter?


Amazing.....At this very moment in time.....my 2000 silhouette is doing the same thing....if you were unaware.....ventures Montana's and silhouette are from the same mold. Very similar in all aspects. My diagnostics have got to the fuel pump part of suspects....but I have already checked filter, relays, fuses and ignition electronics....my latest suspect is the pressure sensor that monitors the pressure of the gas tank....there is also a pressure sensor on the injector rail I'm suspicious of. I'm going to find out how to place each sensor in "okay ....fuel pump turn on and pump fuel to the throttle body" to check them. In my case....I don't smell any gas after turning the engine over....trying to start it.....sometimes for over an hour....never any gas smell....so I suspect fuel delivery is the problem. The fuel pump has several sensors that control whether or not it needs to run....and pump gas. I can hear my fuel pump run for 2 or3 seconds when I turn the ignition to the on or start positions.testing all of those sensors is my plan of action for this 3 day weekend. Your on track with your work and suspicion of the position sensors......vacuum leaks will follow the sensor checks. Vacuum leaks could cause a couple of sensors to fail too.....I dropped my fuel tank last weekend....and found the fuel pump to be in working condition.....I removed my fuel filter and punched a hole through it for free flow.....to eliminate it from the list...after checking the vacuum angle....I will move to the electronics side.....with the ignition switch first and the transmission position indicator switch following.....I've plugged my trouble code reader in and didn't get any indication of any failed electronic devices......my problem and your problem seem to be very similar, except that I am doing all of my work on the van myself. I will try to keep you informed of my diagnostics through fix it.it would be nice to know how yours is advancing too.....there are a few directions you can progress into.....hope one solves your problem....if not.....there will be more ideas to come....until I solve my problem....good luck to. Us both and onward we go......Nick.ps couldn't spell or grammar check because I'm using my phone to compose....and the typing pad covers the entirescript being typed. Sorry for any problems.

Where is the fuel pump relay for the 2006 ford expedition


Have a 2006 expedition that died. Towed it back home and found that the #12 fuse was blown. Replaced the fuse and it started back up. After it started I gave it some gas and it died. It will not start again. I checked the fuse and it is not blown now. Any ideas????

My 2002 Eddie bauer 2x2 Expedition has 126000 miles on it and recently had the spark plugs and coil replaced which costs a lot of money. A day after I picked it up from the dealership. The engine died...


fuel pumps are notorious for self fixing, usually towing the vehicle is enough to make it work again, they develop a flat spot in the armature and vibration usually makes it work but eventually it will die altogether

Replace the fuel pump relay. And if your truck has dual tanks there's three fuel pumps, one in each tank and another secondary fuel pump.

Ford Contour apparently starves for gas, dies.


tell your mechanic to replace the fuel filter. This part is usually less than $10. It should be replaced aout every 50K miles.
