Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

Vehicle shaking like it is missing real bad

I was driving yesterday when all of a sudden the vehicle started shaking real bad. Pulled off to the side and the shaking stopped. Later on my way home it did the same thing, going up the hill it was very sluggish like it had no power, and then the check engine light flashed on andoff for about 30 seconds.

    I had the same problem with my 2000 expedition about 2 weeks ago. I got it to the dealer and they found that 2 of the "ignition coils" (each cyllander has its own) had gone bad. I have just purchased the vehicle and have an extended warranty which covered the repair. This morning, on my way to work, the alternator went out on it and I have it at the shop now....

When was the last tune up done and fuel filter was changed?
there is no spark plug wires I had to replace the boot for the number one cylinder on a 2000 expedition that was also having the same problem if the check engine light is on take it to auto zone and they will put it on a tester free of charge and I hope and pray that it is not the problem like the one I am working on right now I am replacing the upper and lower intake gaskets

running an engine without oil is like trying to keep your body alive without blood-you probably didn't trip the fuel shut off. I would start by running a compression check-if you have any next would be to see if the plugs are wet with fuel after trying to start and last check to see if spark is getting to plugs-sorry mate-cheers Denny

you can start by going to Advance Auto they will scan it for free and tell you what the code is and that will give you a good starting point but in my dealings with the PT they are hard on plugs and wires so a good old fashion tune up is probably all it needs. I hope this helps you.
