My vehicle has extreme rust underneath all over.


Can be due to many things. Vehicle operated on Salted roads or used on Sea water flooded areas. Store named "Painters Supply may have product named PR7 or similar. May help.
Sometimes you have to look at age of vehicle. I have similar problem with my 1999 F150. Only 80000 original miles and rusting beyond repair. Bolt on sheet metal can be changed, but your frame would require frame swap or put your body on Salvage frame. Anything can be done for a price.
Check out PR7, stands for prevent rust formula 7.

I have a P0456 code on my 2003 Ford Expedition. Where is the vapor purge solenoid or the canister?


The information you are asking for varies depending on how the vehicle is equipped ie. ENGINE SIZE, AUTOMATIC or MANUAL TRANSMISSION, 2-WHEEL DRIVE, 4-WHEEL DRIVE, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, etc.
With that said, it also deserves mention that there is a Technical Service Bulletin published by Ford Motor Company that applies to the model year and model that you have listed that involves Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0456.

Please note that this bulletin emphasizes the requirement of special equipment to properly diagnose and repair the DTC's listed in the bulletin. Below is a brief (partial) description of the bulletin:

ISSUE
Some vehicles may exhibit a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated with Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0442, P0455, P0456, P0457 or P1442 or a "Check Fuel Cap" Lamp illuminated with DTC P0457 for the Evaporative Emission System. This may be caused by loose or leaking hoses, loose or broken fuel cap, a leak at the top of the fuel filler pipe neck, etc.
ACTION
Use the Rotunda Leak Detector Smoke Machine (Part 218-00001) or equivalent, to locate and repair leaks in the Evaporative Emission System.

An error code of 0457 came up. any idea what that is?


P0457 FORD - EVAP Control System Leak Detected (Fuel Filler Cap Loose/Off)
EVAP control system has a very large leak such as fuel filler cap fell off, EVAP control system does not operate properly.

Vehicles that meet enhanced evaporative requirements utilize a vacuum-based evaporative system integrity check. The evap system integrity check uses a Fuel Tank Pressure Transducer (FTPT), a Canister Vent Solenoid (CVS) and Fuel Level Input (FLI) along with the Vapor Management Valve (VMV) or Electric Vapor Management Valve (EVMV) to find 0.040" diameter or larger evap system leaks. Federal vehicles can utilize a 0.040" leak check rather than the 0.020" leak check required for California vehicles (click over pic for zoom).

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors

Possible causes:
- Missing fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap

Possible solution:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap

It is a very common problem with Ford vehicles. There are service bulletins for the following vehciles:
1997-2000 Ford CONTOUR
1997-2002 Ford ESCORT
1997-2003 Ford CROWN VICTORIA, MUSTANG, TAURUS
1998-2003 Ford ESCORT ZX2

P0446 error code 2004 ford explorer


Hi jh9848, I'm glad to help!

P0446 code is related to the Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction. Anytime a "CIRCUIT" is involved it can be the component itself OR the wiring and connector that goes to that component. Sometimes it can be the controller but not very often. On most vehicles the vent control system is part of the emissions canister. You'll need to contact the dealer and ask them. Hope this helps and have an awesome day jh9848.

Windshield washer on 1999 ford explorer does not work.


If neither of the two jets are working, you can assume that the pump has failed. You can normally hear them from inside the car but it's better if you listen under the hood (the pump is mounted on the washer fluid canister) while someone else tries to sppray the windshield.
So-called 'universal' pumps are available in auto parts stores or you can pay the inflated price at a dealer.

1999 Ford Explorer Door Locks


Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...
