Ford expedition wont start in cold weather

I have a 2001 ford Expedition 5.7 . Last couple of days i have had to get a boost off from a friend cause my truck wont start. I thought the cold weather was effecting the battery, so i bought a new one but is still having the same problem. I have noticed that when i dont get it to turn on from a boost and let the engine warm up i can turn off the truck and i can turn it back up shortly. It does turn over just doesnt turn on. Please help. Thanks Gaby

You need to have the alternator checked. Sounds as if it has a bad diode or internal regulator.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition wont start

On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.

SOURCE: 98 Expedition 4.6L Overheating, Blows Cold Air

Sounds like the fan and temp gauge (located on the intake mainfold is screwing up) , if its head gaskets it would be smoking out the tail pipe. Have you added any antifreeze if so was it once a week if so make sure nothings leaking on the ground if there isn't then its your head gaskets that would be a first for a 4.6 which is a good motor and none I would on ever had bad heads. I would check the water pump fan first with truck off grap fan at 9 and 3 and see if it wobbels forward and backward if so it's the fan. I have come across alot of bad fans. Fan would cost $30 and up. Rate of difficulty 1-10 I give it a 4.

SOURCE: 1997 Ford expedition intermittent start problem

the expeditions are know for having injectors stick open and will flood the cylinder causing hydolock, when it does this again remove the spark plugs and have someone roll the engine over, if fuel comes out of one of the cylinders then that cylinders injector is at fault. the motor will turn over after it sits because all the fuel will eventually run past the piston rings.

99' expedition wont start in cold weather why?


This is information straight from the repair manual.
1. Defective spark plugs. the gap is to wide to get a nice spark to fire the engine.
2. Defective coolant temperature sensor.
3.Fuel not reaching the injectors, check filter, pump and fuel lines.

I would check one of the first 2. The temp sensor is where i would start.

Where is the thermostat located on the 2000 ford expedition eddie bauer model - blowing cold air, had hard time starting today because temperature is about 20 degrees. no oweners manual


During the winter, try using a higher octane gas. it fires off quicker which will start the car faster. Put about 1/2 tank of high octane, this will also clean the valves and injectors. I usually put a bottle of octane booster in my 2001 expedition 2x's a year. It has octane rating of 109. only one bottle per full tank. t sounds like it just needs a cleaning. If you can stand the cold weather, clean your throttle body which will make a big difference. Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to it's ending point, that is your thermostat. Can be aggravating to change.

Check the #15 fuse in fusebox behind marked panel on left lower dash just below and left of steering column. This is only a 5 amp fuse but it controls a lot. This fixed our 2001 Expedition. 25 cents.

Air conditioner


I have a 2001 ford expedition. the a/c compressor cuts off and back on about every 30 seconds or so. When its on the air gets cold when it cuts back off the air starts warming up. Is this an indication that the freon is getting low?

Unknown warning chime on 2000 Expedition


This is basically the door chime that stays on. I had the same problems in a couple Ford trucks. the only easy solution it to find where the chime speaker is on your expedition and disconnect it. It should be somewhere behind where your stereo is.
